Jessica Roberts ’20 interned with the Indianapolis Zoo in Indianapolis, Indiana, where she aimed to create a professional development session about invasive species for educators. She also served as a camp counselor for the zoo’s camp program that aims to educate young people about conservation and biology.  

Through her experience as an intern, Roberts learned how to create a positive working environment and how to apply her Wooster courses to professional experiences. Along with these skills, Roberts’ time at the Indianapolis Zoo paved the way for her to pursue multiple career opportunities in education. “Because of this fantastic opportunity, I know that I want and can be a high school biology teacher while working part-time at the Indianapolis Zoo as an educator,” said Roberts.
