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 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 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 aerial adventure park.
We are fortunate to have great community support and 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.
Internships are designed around spring, summer, and fall semesters, but not all areas will have openings available during each term. Past internships offered have included Zoo, Herpetology, Aquarium, Conservation, Education, Social Media, Volunteer Engagement, and Horticulture. Internships are hands-on and designed to give you a competitive edge when pursuing a career in this highly competitive field. Through an internship at the GSC, you can learn about and directly impact our mission to inspire scientific curiosity and encourage personal discovery about life and the natural world.
