Weather Interns Wanted
(below are some of our current interns - click photos for bios)

How The Weatherworks is always looking to help provide internships / mentorships to interested high school and college students. Under these, mostly long-distance, experiences, interns can work on various projects that mutually support student growth, while meeting How The Weatherworks' needs.

Internships typically last from six months to several years.

Interested students (with a weather or science focus, strong writing skills, and/or a willingness to research information about various science and other topics) can apply for these internships at any time. Simply review this information document and complete an inquiry form. Upon receipt, we'll get back to you with full application instructions.

We Offer a Variety of Experiences

Interns can work in any of the following areas, or others:

  • Weather-related research projects
  • Researching data and information for other topics
  • Designing / redesigning web pages
  • Collecting, tabulating and analyzing weather data
  • Writing articles or blogs
  • Creating videos

Opportunities for Mentoring

Internships are not just a one-way street. How The Weatherworks goes out of its way to ensure that its interns gain skills and experiences that many of their peers don't have.

This includes providing college and career counseling, affording students chances to attend and present at AMS and NWA Conferences, and enabling students to further round out their resumé by research, writing and other experiences.

She is now in a top communications position at a professional aviation organization.

Several other students have gotten involved in summer field research projects.

Still others have reassessed their career choice and moved into engineering or related fields.
