Jennifer Horwith, a Noyce Scholar and biology major at Eastern Washington University, served as a Mobius Science Center summer intern in 2019.
According to Jackie Coomes, EWU math professor and the special assistant to the Provost for the Honors Program, Horwith embraced her own learning as she taught kids of all ages in libraries through Western Idaho and Eastern Washington.
The theme of the summer internship was NASA’s future Mars Landing Project. Each volunteer facilitated a STEM-inspired space-themed activity.
“The kids loved it and I enjoyed seeing the lights come on for many of them,” says Horwith. “Mobius was a fun learning experience and opportunity for me last summer.”
The Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program supports and encourages talented STEM students to pursue teaching careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
