We are a community advocacy group for the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens dedicated to the completion of the River Park and Gardens as well as maintaining the park and providing educational opportunities.

Guadalupe River Park Conservancy is looking for enthusiastic, passionate individuals that are interested in helping us to incorporate our 3D printers and/or Raspberry Pi computers into our educational programming.

This is a mid-term (6+ months) commitment. Duties will be decided upon together by the intern and supervisor with the end goal of using technology to further our goals of environmental education and stewardship. Special items to consider are that interns may need to lift 20 lbs occasionally, be able to stand up/reach down for extended periods of time, be able to walk across the street and back, and be able to work independently and with minimal direction.

The time commitment varies, but candidates must be able to commit to a regular shift during the week.

The time of the shift depends on the individual, but can be any 2 hour shift from 9 00 AM - 4 00 PM. Specific shifts will be discussed with the supervisor.

Our ideal candidate would be someone who has some experience with any of the following:

  • 3D printing
  • Raspberry Pi
  • physical programming
