Internships for high school students

Summer research experiences are an important experience for students interested in pursuing careers in science. We provide an opportunity for high school students to learn about scientific research first hand in MRSEC labs. Students from Lindblom Math and Science Academy particpate in an 8-week summer internship conducting research under the guidance of graduate students and post-docs.
