Galaxy Explorers
Teen Internship & Volunteer Program

The Galaxy Explorers is a year-round program for high school students who represent the Chabot Space & Science Center on-site and throughout the greater Oakland area. Galaxy Explorers perform live public science demonstrations, explain interactive exhibits, deliver mini science workshops, outreach to community centers and work in our ever-so-popular summer camps. Variety is the key to keeping our teens engaged. For the overachiever there are special interest clubs and teams, which deliver additional public programs on astronomy, environmental science and multi-media. In short, there’s something for everyone year-round.

The Galaxy Explorers’ program provides teens with work experience, community service/volunteer opportunities and paid internships. Participants engage in fun, hands-on scientific activities and develop real-world skills. The Galaxy Explorers also travel to perform outreach programs at neighborhood schools, community centers, festivals and fairs.

Participants in the program benefit from exposure to technology, from sharing and implementing their own ideas, accepting responsibility, and from receiving encouragement by program staff and volunteers to take on leadership roles in science, math, and technology activities.
