The Indiana State Museum has summer employment. They are looking for contract educators to lead some of their summer camps as well as summer camp counselors and have had teachers in the past who were great in these positions.
They are also offering several AmeriCorps member summer positions as well. These are great service positions in which members can earn a small living stipend, earn an education award towards grad school or other educational opportunities and receive other AmeriCorp benefits. Might be a great fit for some young teachers or pre-service teachers as well.
All of the positions can be found on their website as well. https://www.indianamuseum.org/join-our-team/

Tinkerfest is a daylong celebration of curiosity and creativity! Explore 15+ hands-on, interactive activity stations hosted by the maker community designed to engage and inspire Indiana’s designers, builders, coders, artists, makers, and tinkerers of all ages. Each activity invites children and families to tinker, make, invent, create, play and imagine! We are looking for students that might have an engineering, robotics or other makerspace type project that they’d like to showcase and share with families and visitors to the event. We also want to promote the event itself for families to visit the museum that day.
The ISM has an exhibit from the Pittsburgh Children’s Museum called How People Make Things which is all about manufacturing of every day objects.
