The Franklin Institute’s Mission: In the spirit of inquiry and discovery embodied by Benjamin Franklin, the mission of The Franklin Institute is to inspire a passion for learning about science and technology.

The Franklin Institute Internship Program allows students to fulfill school-sponsored internships through volunteering. Internships can be for credit as a Praxis III placement or non-credit as determined by your preference. Goals of the internships are matched to the needs of the Institute.
