Do you remember a teacher or other adult who helped bring science alive for you? Someone who encouraged your interest in math and science and helped you make decisions about your life’s work?
Would you like to fill that role for a high school intern?
The 2011 High School internships and Research Opportunities (HIRO) Program is seeking science project mentors for high school students to assist with research in various Labs, Divisions and Programs. Last year, HIRO students worked on projects ranging from ‘GIS mapping of severe weather datasets using web-based tools’ to ‘Microwave-derived temperature profiles from the HIPPO-1 Project’.
2011 HIRO Program dates: Monday, June 27th through Friday, August 5th
As a HIRO project mentor, you will:
Project mentors spend about ten hours per week with their HIRO student discussing the project, guiding research, teaching scientific methods, and helping the student with their poster, which will be presented at the SOARS Program Poster session on August 5th.
Previous experience is not required.
