Year .5 unit
Select students may join the year-long science internship program. Students must attend an interest meeting in the spring and complete the application process. Accepted interns need to reserve a three-hour block of time in their weekly schedule for the entire year and enroll in Research in Science. Internships are run jointly with the practicum program (see course descriptions). Transportation costs are subsidized by the science internship program.
Internships are intended for advanced study and hands-on experience. Interns have the opportunity to develop their projects fully, learning more about a scientific discipline and the scientific process. Interns have the opportunity to travel to scientific meetings in some years.
Research in Science is a course designed for individual science interns. Students work directly with program directors as they progress through their year, reflecting on their personal experiences, sharing work with fellow interns, exploring scientific literature related to their work, and preparing a culminating presentation. Students work weekly online and meet monthly in person. Grading system: Credit/No Credit.
