High School Digital Learning and Science Research Internship

Work with other digital-savvy teens on an interactive project during this paid summer internship. 

A scientist shares information about the botany collection at the Field Museum with a group of students in a classroom. Images of various plant specimens are laid out on a table as the scientist holds his hands out and lectures. Several cases of wax plant models visible in the background.

The Digital Learning Internship is a deep dive into the science and technology of the Field Museum. In this 6-week paid summer internship, high school students gain hands-on scientific research experience with our plant and fossilized plants collections. Interns create a digital media interactive based on their scientific work by collaborating with our scientists, digital learning specialists, and designers. All interactives will be temporarily installed in the Museum for the public to access and enjoy. 

The internship runs July 1–August 9, 2019, with breaks on July 4 and 5 and August 3. Working hours are Monday to Friday, 9:30am–4pm.
