We are one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions.


What would it be like to dissect a telescope? How do snakes see in the dark? What ocean creatures provide over 50% of the oxygen that we breathe? Have you ever held a creature that could kill 30 people? Come explore these topics and more at interactive carts in the Museum’s most popular Halls. If you have an interest in science and want to inspire Museum visitors, this is the program for you!

Consider becoming a Saltz Intern and learn to use equipment and technologies to guide visitors of all ages in investigations of artifacts, specimens, and the laws of physics. Use pieces of a telescope to explore how scientists view astronomical bodies in the Hall of the Universe, or discover how a snake’s vision is similar to Infrared cameras. In the Hall of Ocean Life, dive into the tiny but powerful work of plankton, or pass around some poisonous sea creatures and their victims.

Participating in the Saltz Internship Program is an opportunity for you to meet Museum personnel, explore scientific content, learn valuable skills for working with and teaching learners of all ages, and have an impact on the experiences of thousands of Museum visitors.

Saltz Interns complete 144 hours of work over the course of the summer running from July 2nd – August 19th 2018.
Interns work 20 hours per week for 5 weeks
Interns participate in two weeks of training for science content, communication skills, and teaching skills at the beginning of the internship
Interns receive a metrocard, and uniform while in the program and a stipend once the program has been completed.
