Please join us and the New York City Youth Funders for a brown bag lunch to discuss the benefits of science-based internships for high school students. The event will be centered around a chapter from Preparing Informal Science Educators: Perspectives from Science Communication and Education (see the chapter here) featuring its two authors - Preeti Gupta, Director of Youth Learning and Research at the American Museum of Natural History and Jennifer Negron, Program Officer at The Pinkerton Foundation.

The chapter was an opportunity to share (with academics and practitioners) the value of youth internships at informal science institutions where young people can build critical job skills and develop a science identity.

  • The impact informal science education programs have on young people 
  • The essential components of a program model that lead to positive youth development outcomes
