Great Falls Public Library MakerSpace Internship
The Great Falls Public Library is looking to hire two interns to lead a MakerSpace for the summer of 2013. The Great Falls MakerSpace is part of a national pilot program to encourage hands-on interaction with science, technology, and math among children and young adults.
The internship is a 30 hour per week position and will run for 10 weeks beginning in June 2013. It will include a stipend of $10/hour for each of the two interns. There will be an 8-week online training period from April-May. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 22 as of April 1, 2013, and should have an interest in working with children and families. Be prepared to have fun, build things, break things, and get your hands dirty!
The MakerSpace is sponsored by the Maker Education Initiative, a non-profit based in San Francisco, CA. Their mission is to inspire creativity and continuing interest in science and technology, and to build a community of families, leaders, educators, mentors, and organizations as resources to nurture young makers.
The Great Falls Public Library is proud to be a part of the MakerSpace program, and we look forward to finding bright young people to join us along the way! For more information, contact Sean Anderson at (406) 453-0349 or visit www.makered.org.
