It’s an exciting time for the interns in the intern program! We are looking to hire new 9th and 10th graders to be interns. As an intern, I learn about new science material every other week from the Academy’s own scientists and researchers at trainings. For example, our most recent trainings cover a wide range like dinosaurs and biodiversity of Africa. In between trainings, I apply what I learn to the content I teach to the visitors of the Academy.
I am currently a Level 2 interns which means I serve on the Leadership Council. In part of what that means is that I get to be a part of the recruitment process. I set up schedules with applicants for interviews and help interview them myself; my opinions matter and help the managers decide who to hire for the program.
Throughout all of these science-intense experiences, I also enjoy working with other kids my age from different, diverse backgrounds by collaborating on science projects (led by interns) and attending fun overnight trips with them. My only regret is not applying for this internship as an entering sophomore, but applying as an entering junior. So don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to explore science!
