During the summer of 2016, Sarah Miller worked as a Programs Intern at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in Fort Worth, Texas. Throughout the summer, Miller had the opportunity to be a part of the programs team and helped each week with the planning of events and facilitation of activities on the museum floor. Miller facilitated activities in the museum's Maker Studio for two days a week where she led multi-disciplinary maker education programing for ages eight and up. Every Friday during the months of June and July, Miller assisted in a paleontology program called "Go Paleo." Miller also assisted in the planning and execution of large weekend events called "Reel Adventures," and "Science on Tap." When not working on events or programs, Miller worked on the museum gallery floor where she interacted with guests, asked questions, and taught science through demonstrations. Overall, Miller's experience helped her achieve her goals of becoming a better educational facilitator and work as a professional in a large museum.
