Museum Experience and Education Intern

REPORTS TO: Manager of Education and Outreach
SEMESTER: Spring and/or Summer 2024

The National Constitution Center is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization devoted to teaching about the Constitution. Located on Philadelphia’s historic Independence Mall, steps from where the Constitution was drafted and signed, it serves as America’s leading platform for constitutional education and debate, fulfilling its congressional charter “to disseminate information about the U.S. Constitution on a nonpartisan basis in order to increase awareness and understanding of the Constitution among the American people.”

The Museum Experience and Education Intern will work with Museum Experience and Education department to create innovative and engaging educational materials to support the Center programs and initiatives.  This includes creating materials such as worksheets, study guides, PowerPoint presentations, quizzes, and other similar materials to better support the educational experience of students, teachers, and parents as they use online resources like the Constitution 101 course, virtual museum experiences, or attend online classes. 

The intern will also support the onsite educational experience by helping to create dynamic museum programs connected to museum exhibits or civic holiday observances. This process will involve researching a variety of historic topics, developing creative ways to present these topics to a wide audience in a museum setting, writing program scripts, creating PowerPoint presentations or other audio/visual elements to accompany the programs, and acquiring any props, costumes, or supplies that may be needed for the programs.
