Summer Intern Application

Summer Interns

The Fab Lab needs creative, curious, and energetic teens aged 14-17 to support our summer camp program. Teens who consider themselves tinkerers, teachers, artists, designers, engineers, or general problem-solving gurus should attend an internship info session to see if the Fab Lab is the perfect fit for their summer plans.

We’re looking for teens who have experience or want experience working with kids aged 5-14. Summer camps are fast paced and have a lot of moving parts–organized interns tend to be the most successful! We want to work with teens who are proud to challenge themselves and to take on new responsibilities as the summer progresses. If you love learning new things, if you’re patient with yourself and others, and you want to support young problem-solvers and creatives, please apply!

These internships are unpaid, but every intern is eligible for camp fee waivers for themselves or family members and will receive a gift at the end of the summer.

Starting Sunday, May 21
