As a place where a lot of innovation happens the Fab Lab depends on and greatly values cognitive diversity. Therefore we are especially interested in hiring individuals from diverse backgrounds, and kindly encourage all sorts of people to apply.
Summer 2019 Interns
We’re very happy the Fab Lab has encouraged so many youth to develop an interest in fabrication, STEAM and design thinking education. This summer we’re hosting an open call for interns at the Fab Lab, to make it more possible for more newcomers to have a chance to indicate their interest and apply. Former summer interns are welcome to apply as well, of course. We will take applications until April 28th and announce offers the week following. Some qualifications:
- First-time interns are offered a position on a volunteer-only basis, we may invite them back for a paid internship the year following. The university is only able to pay interns who are 16 years or older, though it may be possible for those age 15 with a worker permit under special arrangement. We typically offer an end-of-summer thank-you gift for volunteers.
- We can’t assure regular hours all summer, as we’re not always offering camps every week and we may not have enough work opportunities for everyone. Most interns will have the chance to work on a few camps over the summer.
- New interns may be asked to come in to interview with us. We will reach out to them with more information. Intern applicants themselves should be the ones who apply; parents are not permitted to fill out the form.
