Education Intern

The Noguchi Museum -- Education Intern

Please see instructions on how to apply at the bottom of this page.

The Intern at The Noguchi Museum will be in charge of helping to create a brand new family activity guide, which will involve researching and evaluating family programs at The Noguchi Museum and at other NYC institutions. The guide will be offered to families visiting the Museum, and will include information about Isamu Noguchi, the artist who founded the Museum, as well as activity prompts and discussion starters.

To complete this research, the Arts Intern will first observe and become familiar with programs at The Noguchi Museum. Afterwards, the intern will assist the Education Department in developing an evaluation form, along with a set of criteria, to assess family programs and material. Using this evaluation form, the intern will visit other art museums in New York City and observe and evaluate their family guides. After analyzing the collected data from these visits, the intern will participate in meetings with the Education Department to develop prototypes of the new family guide. The intern will be responsible for creating multiples of the prototypes, as well as testing these prototypes, by asking family visitors (both participants of programs and drop-in visitors) for their feedback. As well, they will ask for feedback from the entire Noguchi educator team.  The process of collecting and analyzing data will be reliant on Excel spreadsheets and SurveyMonkey.

This research will be incredibly helpful for the development of the new family guide. The current guide is outdated, and this new guide will be updated with activities that are more currently practiced in Museums. Most importantly, the new guide will be created to be more accessible to diverse family audiences. The Museum will work with a consultant so that the new guide is culturally inclusive, and the intern will be a part of this process, as well.

Projects Include:
- Conduct research to support the creation of a new Family Guide to the Noguchi Museum
- Prototype versions of a family guide alongside the Education Department
- Analyze data from visitors, understanding visitor engagement to the Museum

This position pays $13/hr, 28 hours a week for 9 weeks. In addition, you will receive a $500 stipend for completing the Arts Intern component of the program. Visit the Program Details page for more information.
