Apply to the Science Museum of Virginia Internship Program!
Interns will learn the methods and theory behind inquiry-based learning and teaching in an informal science setting. They are trained in key skills for careers in teaching, museums, or the non-profit world, such as program development, informal education techniques for all age groups, and how a museum operates. In addition, interns participate in daily Museum activities.
Internships are an opportunity to learn outside of the classroom and facilitate the Science Museum of Virginia’s Mission: to inspire Virginians to enrich their lives through science.
