SCWA Background:

The SCWA Education Center was created to help our customers learn about the source of their drinking water and how it is treated, tested and delivered to their tap. We believe that educating our customers about their drinking water helps us to achieve one of our most important goals—the protection of our greatest natural resource, the sole source aquifer that provides all of our drinking water on Long Island. A simulation project has been created to allow education center visitors the chance to drive from location to location to obtain meter reads on customer water meters.


Internship/Project Details:

An intern is needed to test the system multiple times and diagnose any programming bugs. They will also be resolving any problems with the physical picture in the project (ex. something looking wrong in the community).



  • Knowledge in creating high-quality 3D art that has a relatively low polygon count, since the model will need to be rendered approximately 60 times a second.
  • No prior job experience necessary.
  • Experience with Unity is a must, writing code specifically.
  • Proficient in MS Office.
  • Must be goal oriented, organized, motivated to learn.
  • Must be a Suffolk County resident.


This is a paid internship and employment will begin in May and continue through mid- August. Work hours to be determined, with a maximum of 28 hours per week.
