American Museum of Natural History Saltz Internship Program

The American Museum of Natural History's Saltz Internship Program is now accepting applications for the Fall 2015 session. Saltz interns use hands-on interactives and technologies, such as an infrared camera and digital USB microscopes, to guide museum visitors in investigating artifacts and specimens. Interns meet museum scientists, explore scientific content, learn valuable skills for working with and teaching learners of all ages, and have an impact on the experiences of thousands of museum visitors. Interns must be between ages of 16 - 18. The Saltz Internship Program is an intensive learning and work experience intended to build upon the Museum's After School Program. Preference will be given to youth who have completed two After-School Program courses in life sciences, astronomy, or earth and planetary sciences, but all are encouraged to apply. Applications are due September 11, 2015.
