In our 17th successful year in the NY, NJ, CT tri-state area (in CA and TX too!).

We are looking for high energy instructors who “connect” with kids to help expand our presence in the NY, NJ, CT metro area. Flexibility to travel to out-of-town events and conduct events in NY City is a must. Compensation on a per event basis or Full Time, depending on skill set, e.g. we have all types of needs including managing our (on-line retail business) in our Rockland County, NY office, so potentially this is a full time salaried position.

Life-size & genuine museum-quality fossils & minerals are the exhibit backdrop to highly interactive shows and fun hands-on activities like real Fossil Digs. We provide all program scripts, curriculum, complete training and all exhibit/activity supplies.

We conduct school programs on weekdays and birthday parties on the weekends. Plus large special events at places like the Bronx Zoo, Newark Museum etc. Interested in hearing from candidates with weekday, weekend (or both) availability. For those who teach, this could potentially be a summer job during the week and weekend or weekday/after school work during the school year.

College degree preferred. Formal Science, paleontology, geology or teaching background is not essential, but an interest in our subject matter is! Acting or performing arts background and public speaking experience (presenting to large groups of kids) is a plus.Having an appropriate vehicle to transport materials to events and the ability to store displays/materials is ideal.
