Before I dive in, I think I should give some background information about my job...
Instead of doing my work-study job on campus as part of my financial aid package, I have the privilege of working off-campus at a local non-profit as a Bonner scholar. If you remember from a blog post in the spring, I wrote about applying to several jobs for the next three years. As a result, I've accepted a work-study position at the Science Museum of Minnesota in downtown Saint Paul as their Activate Program Intern.
The Activate program occurs every Saturday from noon to 4pm, where museum volunteers run activity tables (ranging from building circuits to drawing tiny drawings under a microscope to making stop-motion videos) on the exhibit floors inside the museum. The activity tables are aimed at the museum's younger visitors (about 12 and under) and to help them understand some science concepts. I work two days a week currently: Tuesday mornings and all day Saturdays. I'm still in the process of figuring out my job as I go since I've only started working a month ago; however, I do help oversee the museum volunteers and help set up activities on Saturdays. Past Tuesdays, I have been translating activity descriptions into Spanish and reorganizing activity shelves.
