For rising sophomores

The STEAM Team is the MFA’s exciting new workforce development program and paid fellowship opportunity for Boston teens. The STEAM Team offers fellows the opportunity to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) careers in a world-renowned encyclopedic cultural institution.

  • Engage in fun and exciting behind-the-scenes museum experiences with MFA staff mentors
  • Visit local businesses, technology companies, and organizations doing cutting-edge work in STEAM like Google, General Assembly, and MIT Media Lab
  • Must attend a Boston public school and/or live in Boston

Fellows cultivate workforce development skills while learning about a range of academic and professional options in these fields. They dive into hands-on learning activities with MFA staff mentors in each of the corresponding STEAM disciplines and visit local businesses, organizations, and artists doing innovative work in the STEAM fields. Fellows build strong connections with professionals in their field of interest and cultivate team building and leadership skills with peers. Most importantly fellows can expect to have an incredibly unique and dynamic experience at the MFA while having fun and learning!

The STEAM Team Fellowship includes fun field trips and activities at various intuitions around New England which highlight STEAM programming. Some of the leading minds in STEAM disciplines periodically give professional development presentations aimed toward social engagement and awareness for the fellows.
