High School Summer Scholars
Our high school summer interns typically work in small teams paired with undergraduate and graduate research students to conduct interdisciplinary research around climate change and energy. All of the projects involve learning some programming and data analysis techniques. They allow for a wide range of computer skills, from beginner to advanced. The only requirement is that interns are interested in computers. Students also participate in weekly group meetings, attend classes, and formally present their research at the end of the summer to members of RDCEP.
These paid eight-week internships usually start around the last week of June and end in mid-August. Typically, interns work Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM.
