QUEST Education Network Internship
Winter Term: September-December
Spring Term: January-April
Summer Term: May-August
QUEST is a science, nature, and environment series produced by KQED Public Broadcasting in San Francisco. We produce a weekly half-hour television program, weekly 5-minute radio reports, an innovative website, and educational materials all centered on Bay Area science research, events, issues, and people. KQED QUEST, in partnership with 16 Bay Area science, environment and nature organizations, works to introduce our audiences to discoveries in their own backyards through an innovative multi-platform collaboration. To see past QUEST programs and web content, visit www.kqed.org/quest.
The education component of QUEST is part of KQED Education, the division of
KQED that provides instructional resources and services to the educational community
to facilitate learning with public media.
QUEST Education develops educational resources for teachers, including standards-based
Educator Guides for television, radio and Web content. The Education team also
provides professional development for teachers and informal educators through
workshops at conferences, local trainings, and during the year-long QUEST Science
Successful interns will have the opportunity to:
