Want to be part of an amazing team of educators and explore science every day? Check out the Saint Louis Science Center’s Junior Internship Program.

The program is a great place for motivated teens to engage with the Saint Louis Community and gain valuable pre-employment experience in a fun, educational setting. Successfully completing the internship can also be a great item for resumes and college applications.

Interns will have the opportunity to work alongside Science Center staff, facilitating positive visitor experiences through an array of tasks and responsibilities. Interns will also be challenged to develop their own deliverables throughout the summer and learn about the world of informal education.

Upon successful completion of one summer program, interns will have the opportunity to continue their internship throughout the school year.
