Our programs range from astronomy and earth sciences to natural history and environmental education, and serve a wide range of ages from preschoolers to adults. Developing and teaching programs in which participants are immersed in the actual 'doing of science' is the common thread throughout the department's work. Montshire's education programs take place on the exhibit floor, in the Museum's classrooms and trails, and with students, teachers, and families in schools and communities throughout Vermont and New Hampshire.
Education interns are involved in all aspects of the department's work - including working with our visitors on weekends, teaching at the Museum and in outreach programs, and being involved in program planning and development. Interns have the opportunity to further develop their teaching skills, with a special emphasis on developing and teaching inquiry-based science learning experiences. Each Education intern is also expected to complete a project of relevance to the Museum.
Successful candidates will have an interest in informal science education, experience working with children and families, and a strong background in science.
