***Notification regarding summer internships***
Unfortunately, except for the two or three internships listed below, we will not be offering our regular internship program this year. We’re able to offer the internships listed here because they can be completed remotely.
Media Arts & Technology along with the Department of Cultural Affairs is offering emergency cultural services. There will not be an application process for these internships. I will email you directly with the project and you will let me know if you can/want to do it. These internships will start May 11 and go through the end of June.
Please feel free to apply here to these available positions. Be advised that any or all of these positions might be modified or cancelled depending on the guidelines issued by the CDC and NM Department of Health.
Position 1, Bradbury Science Museum, Updating existing supercomputing exhibit. The exhibit will have 5 interactive touchscreens, each provisioning a variety of content on a particular subject, such as Women in Computing, Research and Development award winners, next-generation computing platforms. These screen take the place of a static graphic panel and must integrate with the existing exhibit panels we are adding to in this update. We need a student to use the existing palate and design style (which will be mocked up by Omar) and program these touchscreens. They will be a web server-based system using Brightsign media players to interface to the content. We also need to integrate click monitoring to track user activity.
Position 2, Bradbury Science Museum, several topics need short animations to help the user understand the exhibit. These animations would be short and integrated into the content of these touchscreens described above. This intern will be asked to create cartoon characters or caricatures of an avatar host for the exhibit and appear as an attractor and throughout the exhibit to introduce various ideas.
Position 3, This internship is offered pending funding notification. A new Museum in Bernalillo is excited to offer an internship to students interested in developing interactive digital work in museums. The Museum will provide content for the intern to create a media gallery that will display images and video on touchscreen tablets for our Museum exhibit. The intern does not have to be on site for the internship, but the Museum requires a weekly check-in and two in-person meetings. The first would serve as a kickoff to the project and the second would be to set up and test the equipment on-site in Bernalillo.
