Buzz Lab Teen Internship

Registration is closed. Please check back in March 2020.

Buzz Lab 6.0 will be an eight-day paid internship during Summer 2019 for teens interested in art, science, and the environment. Buzz Lab interns engage in learning, teaching, creating, sustaining and advocating for the livelihood of pollinators in a healthy ecosystem.

Buzz Lab interns will work with scientists, artists, and teachers to learn and discuss the importance of pollinators, create works of public art, and participate in gardening and research in the Pollinator Garden at Plains Art Museum and other sites. This year there will be 12 spots available to first or second-year interns. Interns who have participated in Buzz Lab for 2 years or more will apply for a leadership team position. 6 interns will be chosen for the leadership team.

Interns must firmly commit to working four days on June 10-13 and three follow-up sessions: June 25 (rain date June 27), July 24-25, and September 29 (rain date October 6).

This is an 8-day paid internship: After completing the first 4 days June 10-13 (9 am – 4 pm), participants will be paid $120.00. There will be follow up sessions on June 25, July 24-25, and September 29, and participants will be paid $30.00 for each of these follow-up sessions. Lunch and snacks will be provided for each full work day.
