“I am a Math and Education major so the internship fit perfectly in what I want to do after Bowdoin.”
During the summer of 2014, I interned at A Place Called Home. My responsibilities were to improve students’ math skills and prepare them for their math placement exams. I am a Math and Education major so the internship fit perfectly in what I want to do after Bowdoin. I also took part of a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math program at A Place Called Home. I attended a workshop with other educators who were trying to incorporate Arts in STEM. I learned a lot about how arts can be useful in teaching STEM and learned various pedagogical techniques to teach it effectively. My internship at A Place Called Home was a rewarding experience overall and I am grateful for the experience.
