Introducing our Apprentice of the Month: Ivy!

“We have witnessed Ivy’s phenomenal work not only in the past month but in every month she has been a part of the Apprentice Program. She is an amazing addition to the KID Museum family. We appreciate her willingness to take the lead to help guide not only the young people who visit the museum but her fellow Apprentices. Everyone who interacts with her is greeted with her kindness and intelligence.” – Kendra Woodfolk, KID Museum Apprentice Program Coordinator

School: Richard Montgomery High School

Apprentice Since: October 2017

Reason for Becoming an Apprentice: Ivy was interested in STEM, particularly science research and genetics, but she also loves working with kids.

Favorite Part of Being an Apprentice: Ivy says we underestimate kids abilities, and she enjoys seeing the ideas that kids can come up with at KID Museum.

Advice for Apprentices: Just dive in and take chances! “The activities change often so you have to learn new things quickly. Don’t be afraid to try something new!”

Future Plans: Ivy hopes to study Child Development at her top college choice, and ultimately become a Pediatrician.

KID Museum’s Apprenticeship Program gives high schoolers an opportunity to continue exploring their STEM interests while gaining valuable work experience and earning SSL hours. We are now accepting applications for new Apprentices! Learn more and apply here by March 8: kid-museum.org/apprentice
