Exposure to experiences and people shapes the life path choices of young people. Berkeley Lab offers high school students a six-week summer internship program, Experiences in Research, to show them career possibilities. Students select from a list of projects and obtain experience in STEM fields that are nearly impossible for most students at this age. Could you be a mentor this summer?

You can make a difference in 2024. Mentors are needed in STEM and STEM-adjacent fields to be part of the program. Come learn more on Thursday, Dec. 14 at noon for a program overview and a workshop to develop project ideas. You can see the 2023 list of projects for inspiration. The internship can be virtual or hybrid.
