Miami undergraduate intern, Sarah Elizondo

Internships provide the vehicle for an in-depth understanding of museum operations.  Interns use critical thinking skills, creative problem solving, and even simple trial-and-error as they learn to prepare specimens, catalog and accession new collections, create exhibits from concept to installation, identify and control museum pests, and hone interpersonal skills in one-on-one interactions with visitors.  Interns are intimately involved in the conservation and preservation of all natural history specimens.

Real world opportunities. Mentored by museum professionals. Touching the past while preserving life histories for future generations.
