The E-Team is a great way for teens to directly engage visitors through science-related activities, hands-on crafts, and interpretation of exhibit areas. Over the course of the year, teens participate in weekly training in job skills, environmental science, and interacting with the public. During the weekend shifts, our teens become an essential component of engagement on the exhibit floor: explaining exhibits and leading activities for our guests. In the Spring the E-Team works with other groups to host special programs after hours. This March, the E-Team hosted five-hundred visitors in and event celebrating the mentoring community.

In addition to helping ECHO fulfill its mission, E-Team members gain valuable science content knowledge, job skills, social interactions with new peers, leadership experience, and various experiences that connect them to the lake and our community. They also receive a stipend of $20/week.
Do you know of any teens that are interested in science and the environment, possess strong interpersonal skills, and are reliable? Applicants should be freshmen or sophomores next year. Please visit our website for more information at: echovermont.org/
