How Would You Like to Live in a Museum?

Chicago’s famed Museum of Science and Industry wants you to live within the building for a month – in exchange for an amazing opportunity and ten thousand bucks! You’ll be expected to live and breathe science twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week from October 20th until November 18th. There are some requirements, of course, such as being able to pass drug and background screenings. You’ll not be able to have much contact with the outside world. But you will have the experience of a lifetime!

Sure you’re giving up a month of your life, but, what do you have to lose? If you’re single, this will postpone a month of bad dates, decisions, and drunk texting. And, if you’re married, it’s like a paid vacation from your spouse. Either way–it’s a win win situation. They are looking for “an adventurous, outgoing person with a strong interest in learning about science and the world around her or him, plus the ability to write engagingly about your experiences. Ideally, you’re also the web-savvy sort who can keep your thumb out of frame when taking photographs.”

In order to enter the contest, you must complete an entry package. The package will consist of a sixty-second video you record, a 500-word essay explaining your interest in this project, a completed application form, a 5″ x 7″ head shot photograph and the signed Release and Waiver.

This sounds like such a fantastic opportunity. I wish I didn’t already have previous commitments during the time period. I would have taken a shot at this myself! If any of you out there in our community decide to go for it, please let us know – and the best of luck to you!

The software and apps we have gathered together for your machines and devices will never belong in a museum. We keep the most up-to-date and hottest titles available.
