Science internships, and the accompanying course Research in Science, are for students in grades 11 and 12 interested in working closely with individual mentors and teams of world-renowned professors and scientists to understand scientific inquiry in a real-world setting.
The internships and coursework introduce students to experimental design, science literature, graph interpretation, public speaking, the act of creating presentations, and finding connections between science and other disciplines. The interns also learn to connect the work they are doing in a laboratory setting to the larger, exciting “big picture” of where scientific research is today.
From protein assembly to cellular biology students participated in science internships at Ecovative, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Siena College and the New York State Museum Fish Lab.
Cultural Anthropology, Enzymatics and Environmental Engineering are just a few of the projects our interns worked on in 2011-2012.
