High School Digital Learning and Science Research Internship

Work with other digital-savvy teens to develop 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 six-week paid summer internship, high school students gain hands-on experience with scientific research.

Interns collaborate with our scientists and explore the Museum’s plant and fossilized plants collections. Then they put their knowledge of science and user experience design to work, creating a digital project like an online community science site. This program exposes interns to the inner workings of museums and diverse careers in museums, science, and technology. 

The program runs through the summer; interns must be rising juniors and seniors as of fall 2020. Working hours are Monday to Friday, 9:30am–4pm. 


Applications are closed.
