The Greensboro Science Center's internship program is designed to give selected college and graduate students the opportunity to utilize their academic knowledge in a professional work setting. Participants will find that their internship experience will help them develop leadership skills, determine future goals, and network with professionals. Interns may receive course credit for their internship by completing all school and program requirements. All internships are unpaid.

The Greensboro Science Center is committed to excellence in science education by providing the community with a dynamic, experiential and family-focused attraction. Part of our mission is designed to inspire scientific curiosity and encourage personal discovery about life and the natural world. We are a three-in-one destination, with an AAM accredited museum as well as an AZA accredited zoo and aquarium on site-in addition to our OmniSphere Theater and SKYWILD, our treetop adventure park.

We are fortunate to have great community support. We are constantly growing and evolving. We have a team of fun, talented, and dedicated staff who love teaching others about what they do. We hope you will consider joining our team as an intern. No two days are the same around here. We can promise you a great opportunity to learn and grow in a fun environment.
