McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center

Hi, Sarah – we don’t have housing lined up. But we do have openings for two interns at our science museum in Concord NH, the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center. The interns lead our summer STEM day camps for kids ages 5-14 (not all together – different camps for different ages). We offer 7 camps, just one focuses on the environment.

STEM Interns

The McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center seeks candidates with STEM backgrounds to work with youth at the Discovery Center this summer. The STEM Interns will work with the Discovery Center’s Education Team to develop age-appropriate, STEM-based curricula and daily activities for the Center’s summer STEM day camp series, and serve as lead summer camp teachers and counselors, creating an enjoyable, safe, challenging educational STEM camp for all Discovery Center campers. The STEM Interns also assist with other Discovery Center educational initiatives.

Applicants must have an associates/bachelor’s degree in a STEM field or be currently enrolled in a 2- or 4-year college as an undergraduate majoring in a STEM field; at least three months’ experience in teaching and/or working with children is preferred. The ideal candidates will be self-starters with strong leadership and social skills, who enjoy working with children and who can positively challenge and encourage children to learn and explore.

Salary:  $12/hour, approximately 40 hours/week from mid-June through mid-August; schedule is primarily Monday through Friday but may include weekends and some nights.
