Available Positions 

Makery Fellow (part-time): Makery Fellows support visitors in this endeavor through The Makery and encourage limitless exploration, experimentation and discovery. Inspired by the Maker Movement, The Makery is a technology-based, do-it-yourself learning environment that embraces creativity, experimentation and tinkering. Rooted in STEM (and STEAM) education, the Maker Movement embraces a wide variety of science and art domains, including electronics, woodworking, fine arts and crafts, digital technology, design, printing, metalworking, and more. See the full job description here. Interested candidates should send cover letter, resume, and references to Jarrett Grimm
 
Visitor Services Associate (part-time): Kidzu Children’s Museum seeks fun, creative, and dedicated individuals from diverse backgrounds to join our workforce! Visitor Services Associates work as the “face of the museum” greeting and checking in visitors, conducting tours, sharing information about programs/events/special workshops, and more. Visitor Services Associates serve a dual role in promoting the museum’s unique and quality experience by receiving cross training for both our admissions desk, and the museum exhibit areas. Ideal candidates will have experience working directly with young children 8 & under, have customer service/retail experience; have the ability to work independently and in a group. Candidates should be comfortable multi-tasking in a fast paced environment, but also be a self-starter during slow times. Weekend and weekday work are both available.
