The Teen Internship Program offers students in grades 9 through 12 the opportunity to go behind the scenes of our Museum and its exhibitions.


Museum professionals and guest speakers from around Silicon Valley will share stories about the history of innovation to help interns better understand the transformative impact of technology on our past, present, and future.


Teens will explore the Museum’s content through research, hand-on experiences, and team projects.


As members of CHM’s Education team, Teen Interns play a crucial role as they help visitors of all ages—from both local and international communities—to make personal connections to the Museum and the history of computing.
