Great Falls library offering 2 internships through Maker program

The Great Falls Public Library has been selected as one of 26 sites to host a special science program this summer, and they are looking for two young adults to take the lead.

The MakerSpace Education Initiative is a national group that offers kids hands-on science lessons, and this is the first time you'll find it in Great Falls.

Library representative Susie McIntyre said, "We're going to have all sorts of exciting robots and technology and all sorts of things for kids to make with and we are hiring two interns to staff that."

Applications are due by March 1st.

Here is more information about the internships:

The internship is a 30 hour per week position and will run for 10 weeks beginning in June 2013.

It will include a stipend of $10/hour for each of the two interns. There will be an 8-week online training period from April-May. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 22 as of April 1, 2013, and should have an interest in working with children and families. Be prepared to have fun, build things, break things, and get your hands dirty!

The Great Falls Public Library is proud to be a part of the MakerSpace program, and we look forward to finding bright young people to join us along the way! For more information, contact Sean Anderson at 406-453-0349.
