Siqi Wei ’17: Summer Fellow for Catamount Institute

What did you do for your organization this summer?

“I worked as an environmental educator and facilitated the implementation of a variety of summer camps. I designed two lesson units at the beginning of this summer and taught them on a weekly basis. In terms of logistics, I participated in staff meetings every weekday and prepared teaching materials prior to each camp. I also utilized Catamount resources to contact previous Public Interest Fellows to strengthen the connections among environmental educators.”
