- Travel throughout the state of Iowa with the fleet of Conservation Station trailers
- Contribute to water and soil research projects with the Conservation Learning Group, including a project exploring soil health and water quality impacts of relay intercropping as method of sustainable intensification
- Gain technical skills related to agricultural and biosystems engineering, environmental science, soil health and water quality through both field and lab research
Program dates are May 15 – August 3, 2024. The internship program is based on campus at Iowa State University and will involve travel to outreach events around the state, including some scheduled night and weekend events, as well as select research sites. This is a paid internship, with students working up to 40 hours/week.
