What: The Port Townsend Marine Science Center is pleased to offer two unpaid internships for the 2016 season. Marine Education Interns will learn by actively assisting our program staff in a wide variety of programs and tasks including exhibit maintenance and interpretation, volunteer management, summer camp education, and citizen science. Other aspects of life in a busy non-profit educational organization will be explored as opportunities arise. Interns are responsible for completing paperwork to receive university credit.

Our two buildings house a small handson Marine Exhibit with local near-shore animals and plants, a Natural History Exhibit featuring a fully articulated orca skeleton with exhibits connecting her to emergent issues of toxics in the marine environment, a citizen science research lab, and two fully equipped classrooms.
