  Overnight Program & Summer Courses Administrative Internship

Museum of Science, Boston



The Overnight Program at the Museum of Science inspires children to discover science in an educational and interactive way. Each year, about 20,000 participants sleep overnight at the museum through organizations like schools, community, and youth groups, engaging in special hands-on activities in the evening after the Museum closes. The Summer Courses program inspires youth in grades 1-8 through 6 weeks of week-long hands-on summer learning in July and August. Topics range from bugs to robots to food chemistry, and more.


The Overnight Program & Summer Courses Administrative Intern will assist office staff in the daily operations involved in running two revenue-generating programs here at the Museum of Science. The intern will track and report on data used to make essential business decisions (class fill-rates, participant feedback, and attendance) and will be exposed to many facets of the overnight operations, which includes work with almost every department of the museum. This is primarily an administrative position though opportunities to observe the overnight program will be available for those interested.
