Multiple positions available, supervised by the Outreach and Elementary Education Specialist. Position available with work-study funding, course credit, or unpaid.
Time Commitment: 10-20 hours per week dependent on the scheduled off-site programs and museum events.
Job Description: The WonderLab Science Outreach Assistant Internship is designed to provide hands on experience in science presentation as well as training in formal and informal science education. The intern will receive regular trainings by expert museum staff, and will then have the opportunity to immediately apply what they have learned. The intern will assist with preparing, organizing, and presenting interactive science shows and hands-on activity stations at off-site programs during the Summer of 2019. The incumbent will also help to enhance visitor experience and educational opportunities at the museum by assisting with workshops, presentations, staffing weekly activities, and program preparations as time allows. In addition, the intern may elect to take on an independent project during their internship to create a science show or set of activities on a topic that is of interest to them.
Interns will receive a free museum membership (with reciprocal membership at hundreds of other museums), a 20% discount at the store, and valuable job experience and mentorship in informal science education. Students in education or STEM fields with a background in public speaking/presentations are strongly encouraged to apply.
