Digital (youth) interns tag objects in the Museum collection!
Through the on-going program A City of Neighborhoods project the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum selected 5 students as digital (youth) interns. During a one-week internship youth met with curators at the Museum to discuss the e-museum collection and learn about the curatorial departments. The Digital Interns sorted through thousands of images in the Museum collection to identify objects that would provide depth to their knowledge and understanding of design and how those objects address design challenges in New York City communities. These objects have been tagged for public use and are available on our website, become informed about the design process as seen through the collection.
