Greensboro Science Center
The Greensboro Science Center is looking for up to three qualified interns to assist our Education Staff. Education interns will learn about all aspects of informal education that take place at our facility including school and public programs, Aquarium presentations, and special events. This internship is appropriate for those seeking a profession in formal/traditional or informal/nontraditional education fields.
Some internship activities are currently on hold due to COVID-19, as we are not delivering guest-facing programs like aquarium talks until it is deemed safe to do so. Those activities in may be limited or not done at all in Fall 2021.
What would I be doing as an Education Intern?
What would my schedule be like?
On-site scheduling can be arranged around the intern’s class schedule. Education Interns are typically on site a minimum of two days a week, around four hours each day. We require a minimum of 120 hours to complete an internship. Weekday morning availability is required. The start and end dates for this internship are flexible but will be completed between August and December. A minimum of 120 hours is required during that time frame for the successful completion of a non-animal care internship. Please note that in order to receive credit as a GSC intern, you must complete that number of hours regardless of any school or program requirements which may be less than that.
Who would I be learning from?

Please combine all three documents into one document with a file name that indicates your name and the internship you are applying for.
