Teen Technology Guide Internship
Summer Session | May - August 2020
The Teen Technology Guide Internship (Teen Tech) is a volunteer internship program for students, designed to nurture young leaders in our community and provide support for museum learning programs in a technological age. High school students will work in the Innovation Studios assisting staff in creating and implementing engaging, hands-on experiences for museum visitors. They will spend most of their time in Maker Studio.
Maker Studio is a once-a-month, pop-up program located in Innovation Studios designed to give guests an opportunity to engage in hands-on making and STEAM based experiences in a small setting. This is a wonderful opportunity for teens to gain experience working in a professional setting, meet new people, make a positive impact on our community, and be a part of the Maker movement. The Maker movement emphasizes learning through doing, creating new things, and sharing new ideas and technologies.
The application is for the summer session only. Some applicants will be selected for phone and in-person interviews with the Innovation Studios Manager. Those who have been selected as Teen Technology Guides in past sessions must reapply. Volunteers will be selected and trained as a cohort for a specific session. Internship schedule will be arranged individually with the Studio Manager, but each intern is expected to commit to 80 hours throughout the school year.
