Students 2 Science offers internships to high school and college students in order to develop meaningful and relevant experiments, communicate effectively across multi-generations, and contemporize our offerings. Example of past projects completed by our interns include: developing experiments to support the biotechnology day for our ISAAC program, developing new V-Lab experiments, and creating a social media campaign to increase our offerings on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
Corporate partners can play a big role by providing funds to hire interns and fellows. A donation of $10,000 affords S2S an internship and for $25,000 S2S can afford a fellow with content expertise from a local corporation.
Students 2 Science believes in using “students to teach students” to support our programs whenever possible. In our experience, students are more receptive to learn from instructors close to their own age, ethnicity and socioeconomic background. Additionally, the student instructor gains self-confidence and proficiency in the subject matter. S2S provides students in high school and college with the following 3 unique opportunities:
- Students may serve as Assistant Instructors during ISAAC Middle School Programs
- College students may serve as in-class Mentors during V-Lab sessions
- Students are invited to participate in Independent Research Programs
Currently, Students 2 Science accepts applications from local high school students to perform independent research programs lasting 2-3 months. This program provides a unique opportunity for students to conduct scientific research in a mentorship program with an S2S technologist. Students are encouraged to propose a project in an area of interest or may work to develop experiments to support the ISAAC or V-Lab programs.
