The Mosaics in Science program, developed by the U.S. National Park Service (NPS), in partnership with the Geological Society of America (GSA), aims at increasing the diversity among those who seek STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) careers within the National Park Service.
The Mosaics in Science program offers paid, 11-week STEM positions in some of the most beautiful natural areas in the world—National Park Service sites throughout the U.S., including two locations in Florida: Gulf Breeze (Sea Turtle & Shore Bird Outreach) and St. Augustine (Interpretation / Resource Management Assistant).
After completing their projects, participants travel to Washington, D.C., to participate in a career workshop that provides opportunities to present their work.
