About Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

As an educational and cultural nonprofit institution, the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum promotes the awareness and understanding of history, science and service through its collections, exhibitions and programming in order to honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth. Located in New York City on the Hudson River, the Intrepid Museum was founded in 1982 with the acquisition of the legendary aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark. Welcoming one million visitors annually, the Museum also features the space shuttle Enterprise, the world’s fastest jets and a guided missile submarine.


Rotational Summer Intern

July 2017 - August 2017 New York City, NY
“I worked as a summer intern at the museum. I had two tasks. The first was to annotate auto-biographies that the Intrepid had gathered from war veterans who served on the USS Intrepid. My annotations would then be used by museum curators in the future. Then, my co-workers and I wrote a 10-minute long play inspired by the stories we read. My other task was to perform a 15-minute long interactive science demonstration to museum guests at the Intrepid's space shuttle exhibit. My time at the Intrepid taught me the creative process of writing and acting. I also learned how to sort and sift through lots of information and distill the salient points into an organized structure. Lastly, I learned how to use my academic knowledge in a presentational format, understanding how to engage an audience and still convey important points in an articulate yet concise manner.”
