Science Career Ladder
Join the team! As a Science Career Ladder intern, you’ll gain fun and meaningful work experience by interacting with visitors, performing, science demonstrations and providing support to our science classes and camps. Assisting at the science center in these important day-to-day functions, you’ll acquire communication skills, knowledge of science and the scientific process, practice with inquiry, and a grounded experience in education.
Through experience, dedication, and hard work, SCL participants will quickly work their way up the ladder as Interns Level I, II, and III, with the possibility of being hired as a Mad Scientist. As a significant amount of SCL participants' duties will involve public interaction, participants will be expected to improve and cultivate good social and interpretion skills. It is the museum’s hope that participants will grow and develop, not only as science educators and facilitators, but also as individuals.
The next opportunity for new students to join the SCL team: March 2015. Download the SCL intern application here.
As a STEM intern, you will be employed at a local business related to your area of interest, whether it is in Science, Technology, Engineering or Math. The internship program is the catalyst between students and their community providing experience and career opportunities to help students develop and grow their passion for their future. Students must be in good standing at school, provide two letters of recommendation, and be 16-17 years old. Upon completion of the internship, students must complete and present a reflection assignment describing the STEM skills learned on the job and present it to the STEM Internship Board.
