White Sands is a living laboratory. Why a laboratory? Because new discoveries are being made here all the time! From our unique wildlife to our fascinating geology, there are many opportunities for your students to learn. You are welcome to bring your class to the monument or check out our loan materials and ready-made lesson plans.
Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) program is an excellent opportunity to learn about the resource and create new place-based lessons in the monument to apply back in your classroom. Temporary TRT positions may be available at many of the over 400 National Park Service sites, including White Sands National Monument.
The Geoscientists-in-the-Park (GIP) program works with partners to match college students and recent graduates age 18 - 35 years old with short-term, paid, internships with the National Park Service. Whites Sands National Monument has openings for two GIP positions, one in paleontology (details and apply here) and in interpretation and education (details and apply here). Each position will last one year and begin in September 2018.
