Project Description

Do you like working with computers? Are you interested in how new computer programs are tested and developed? Do you want to learn more about what it takes to plan a city complete with parks, businesses, houses, and places to shop? Are you looking to earn community service hours? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we would like to invite you to join us as we pilot the latest version of Land Science; a virtual land planning internship that is based right here in the town of Lowell, Massachusetts!

This is a great opportunity for students in grades 8-12 interested in computers, conservation and land planning to practice the skills of professionals in the field. You will join a regional planning firm as a virtual intern and gather information from stakeholder groups as YOU design a land use plan for a community in Lowell! Since this is the newest version of Land Science and we have added some new features to the game, we will be asking you to let us know how things work. Your feedback will help in the development of the game for future versions!

We would like to run the next version of Land Science here at Mass Audubonís Drumlin Farm in Lincoln, MA during February vacation week. The commitment is approximately 12 hours, and would happen Tuesday February 21st through Friday February 24th from 1:00-4:00pm. So, if you are as excited about this opportunity as we are, please let us know as soon as possible. If you would like to sign up or need further information please contact Robin Stuart at 781-259-2217 or (address redacted) Please respond by February 10st.
