Carson City Library looking for Bionics Camp interns

  

The Carson City Library is hiring three interns to assist with a series of three-day Bionics Camps to be held in 2021. Carson City high school students who are interested in assisting with Bionics Camps are encouraged to apply by Nov. 22.

Students can apply by emailing a resume showing experience and/or interest in STEM topics, and two letters of recommendation (one from a teacher, counselor or other school administrator) to the Carson City Library's Creative Learning Department: creativelearning@carsoncitylibrary.org. Applicants are asked to use the subject line "Bionics internship" when applying or inquiring about the Bionics Camp internship.

Students in this paid internship will work during Bionics Camps held throughout the second half of the 2020/21 school year. Candidates must be Carson City School District students at least 16 years old. Interns will help middle school students attending camps to complete their bionics projects. Library staff will be seeking students for this internship who like helping peers learn and are interested in a STEM/STEAM career path.

Funds for the Carson City Library’s Bionics Camps have been provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Nevada State Library, Archives and Public Records. This project is 90% funded with IMLS federal monies with an additional 10% locally funded. Federal funds in this project are $ 26,376.
