Being an intern at Sparx isn’t about taking a back seat. You’re bright, motivated and integral members of the team. You’ll be right in there getting involved in our research, helping discover what works (and what doesn’t) in the field of education. Our summer internships include:
- Content Science – develop engaging and radical new ways to teach maths topics and preparing for implementation into schools
- Data Science – put the data through its paces, performing rigorous statistical evaluation to look at the bigger picture and finding solutions to problems
As an intern we provide you with free accommodation. We have a range of on-site facilities that, as an employee, you can use free of charge and and we have a café serving delicious, local, and organic food. All for free.
Here at Sparx we're using a scientific and research-based approach that takes the guesswork out of education. Through data and real-world classroom observation, we're investigating what makes the best learning experience in order to improve educational outcomes for students, today and tomorrow.
We’re looking for people with a real passion for education and a belief in the power of technology to improve it; people who want a challenge and people who want to make a difference.
