Two CAST interns working together with paper materials at a large table

At CAST, we know that every employee, including our interns, contributes to our international reputation as a leader in education research, technology, and Universal Design for Learning. Teamwork, risk-taking, and collaborative thinking are essential to the way we work. Most of all, our mission—to transform education design and practice until learning has no limits—motivates not only what we do but how we do it.

We value the contributions that interns make to our innovative capacity and knowledge base. Therefore, in addition to the project work that interns do, interns are included in meetings and other events that include training, brainstorming sessions, guest speakers and project presentations.

Past interns at CAST have...

  • participated in research prototype development teams
  • contributed to subject-specific literature reviews
  • collected research data in schools
  • created multi-media products
  • developed online materials for websites and applications
  • designed logos, posters, bookmarks, and other print publications
