Manager, Computer Science Education InitiativeMuseum of Science, Boston
Innovation and creativity come from the unique perspectives of a diverse staff. We value your perspective.


The Museum of Science will develop curriculum on computational thinking and computer science for the school environment, beginning with an elementary school-level product. The manager of this initiative will direct all aspects of this effort – including being the lead author on the curriculum content and project managing the responsibilities associated with bringing this project to market. The successful candidate will be able to work independently, create and implement an exciting vision for an original computer science curriculum, lead a small team of educators focused on developing an innovative educational product, and collaborate with colleagues in and out of the Museum to realize this vision. While start-up funds for this project are available, additional funding will be required to complete this curriculum – and the manager of this effort will work both independently and with Museum colleagues to secure that funding. This exciting curriculum development effort has the potential to grow into additional computer science initiatives upon the successful completion of this initial curriculum project.

  • Develop original elementary school-level curriculum in computational thinking/computer science
  • Work with external advisors, pilot school locations, and content experts
