Public Programs Summer Internships
The MIT Museum is seeking several outgoing, knowledgeable, friendly individuals to make the science and technology in our galleries come alive this summer. Learn about museum education, teach kids (and adults) about engineering, and explore current topics in science and technology. The interns will work in the Education and Public Programs Team leading and developing science and engineering demonstrations and group activities, organizing evening programs, interpreting exhibits and leading gallery tours, assisting with educational workshops, and researching background materials for Museum exhibits and programs. Each intern will develop and implement an independent project that augments current public programming in the MIT Museum.
