Teens are invited to share their ideas on how MSI can better engage youth audiences in this new initiative.
MSI provides experiences that deepen the engagement and interaction of youth interns and guests in science and science-related disciplines, with a vision to inspire and motivate our children and guests in the fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine.
Our new Youth Advisory Committee (MSIYAC) is seeking youth ages 14–17 who love everything science, especially MSI. We want to hear ideas on reaching youth and feedback on a range of Museum content.
- Youth ages 14–17 by June 30, 2017
- Able to commit to a term lasting from June-August 2017
- Have access to the internet for online assignments
- Be able to attend all meetings at MSI as scheduled
MSIYAC members are required to attend three meetings where they will tour Museum exhibits and offer feedback afterwards. The meetings are:
- Friday, June 30, 9 a.m. to noon
- Tuesday, July 11, noon to 3 p.m.
- Tuesday, Aug. 8, noon to 3 p.m.
Members also must complete short, online tasks before each meeting and visit MSI on an additional day with family and/or friends and provide feedback about the visit.
All MSIYAC members will receive 12 service learning hours and a $50 Amazon or Target gift card. Also, participating in the MSIYAC will look great on resumes and college applications!
Online applications have closed.
Thank you to everyone who has applied. All applicants will be notified of their status by June 9, 2017.
