Internships

Opportunities

Discovery Center Internships offer an exceptional and unique experience at an award-winning children’s museum. We offer customized, staff-level internships in a broad range of disciplines to qualified college students, recent graduates and graduate students. Internships are non-compensated, but the experience is invaluable. Interns are placed with enthusiastic mentors who can help them develop future job skills and discover the inner workings of a children’s museum.

Marketing, Development, Education and Exhibits are departments often looking for interns. In many cases, you can "create an internship." Just email a letter of interest stating your internship goals, your desired time commitment and your availability to work. If your internship would benefit Discovery Center, and we have the staff to guide you, we will contact you.

Many of our interns receive academic credit for their work. Please contact your advisor, career services department, or department chair to inquire about your school's policy.
