About 200 interns gathered at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis in June for Indiana INTERNnet’s first intern engagement event of the summer. Talent retention is one of Indiana INTERNnet’s main focus areas, and studies show that students who feel a community connection are more likely to stay and work there.

The event provided an opportunity to experience one of Indiana’s largest attractions and network with peers. It began with presentations about the museum’s award-winning internship program and the 1925 Society, the museum’s new young professionals group. Interns then connected with mentors from various departments at TCM, based on interest and industry.

Next, they teamed up and explored attractions such as the water clock, planetarium and Dinosaurs Up Close, an immersive journey into a prehistoric era. Interns also enjoyed exclusive guided tours of the museum’s vast collection of artifacts and took a behind-the-scenes glimpse of a Lilly Theater rehearsal for the upcoming show, The Emperor’s New Clothes: A Musical Comedy.

Indiana INTERNnet will host its next summer intern engagement event at the Indiana State Fair on opening day (August 7), with free admission for those presenting a college I.D.
