Academic Level:
High School Students

Our Teen Science Scholar Internship offers high school students, who will be in their junior or senior year in high school in the Fall of 2017, a chance to work alongside scientists from our Research and Collections Team at the Museum. Selected students will be involved with various aspects of their mentors' research and/or collections programs, presenting an overview of their work at an annual symposium held at the Museum at the end of the summer. Teens who are from groups underrepresented in the sciences are highly encouraged to apply. (e.g., individuals who are first-generation college bound, Hispanic, Latino, African American, and Native American).

This is a paid internship and is open to students who will be entering their Junior or Senior year of high school in the fall of 2017.
