Abstract

This paper is a summary report of the "Teamed Internships Program" (TIP), an Advanced Technological Education (ATE) grant through the National Science Foundation (NSF). This three-year project created internships encompassing regional industries, federal research facilities, and two- and four-year educational institutions. The project cultivated teamwork and communication skills for environmental technician and engineering students, developed instructional materials, and provided valuable contacts with industry. To foster faculty and teacher enhancement and student interest in environmental science and technology, insights from the program were incorporated into instructional materials and educational modules for dissemination to local secondary schools.
