Children and Screens: Institute of Digital Media and Child Development is seeking motivated students for Spring 2023 internships. Our organization provides a collaborative environment where students from across the nation bring our mission to life: to advance and support interdisciplinary scientific research on the impact of digital media on child and adolescent health, development, and wellbeing; foster public awareness; promote policy that protects young people; and increase human capital in the field. 

Interns have the opportunity to actualize our goal of helping young people lead healthy lives in a digital world by assisting with our programs, including planning and executing our webby-nominated Ask the Experts webinar series, reading and assessing scientific literature, analyzing public policy and legislation, and creating informative, engaging content for our digital platforms. This is in addition to attending weekly staff and intern meetings.
