The program begins on Tuesday, July 6 and ends Friday, August 13, 2010. Participants can enter either a service learning or internship program model. Internships are reserved for college-bound juniors and seniors.
The BITS 2010 Service Learning theme is Exploradelphia! Participants will gain an opportunity to learn about historic, environmental, and cultural landscapes throughout the city with an emphasis on the city's natural environments and human-environment problems. Students will work in teams of 10 with Temple University mentors to visit, document, and create web content about the places they visit and explore. Students will create community accessible collections of content that can support local environmental quality and development goals as part of their summer long service learning project.
BITS Interns will have the opportunity to work on environmental problems through placements in research labs, libraries, institutes and projects on Temple University's Main and Health Sciences Campuses. Students will gain an understanding of the day to day activities in these settings, work place expectations, and technology and research skills.
