Become a Powerhouse Intern


Why get an ordinary job when you can intern with us! If you’re a student in middle school, high school, or college, we may have just the assignment for you.  A variety of opportunities—unpaid and paid—offer you the chance to:

  • Boost your science knowledge
  • Acquire real world experience teaching
  • Increase your phone and internet skills
  • Learn cash handling and stocking
  • Get hands-on marketing experience

As Powerhouse interns help with summer camps, support gallery events, and talk with our visitors, they sharpen communication skills and gain confidence in interacting with people of all kinds.  As they assist with creation and maintenance of exhibits and activities, they expand problem-solving abilities and maker skills.

We have flexibility to work around many students’ schedules and to create roles that are good fits.  We do ask our interns to come to The Powerhouse every other week for two hours of training.

If you can see yourself giving a fascinating demonstration, creating a cool science lesson, and welcoming excited visitors, fill out our online application today!
