Internships for high school students are rare, and these three opportunities are incredible. Instead of getting coffee or spending days immersed in file cabinets, these interns will be hands-on. The three projects include re-organizing the N.W. Harris Learning Collection and preparing specimens for educational loans, documenting lichen mimicry, a phenomenon seen in some large insects such as praying mantises, or an archaeological study of Peruvian materials. Interested students may apply to only one or all three, utilizing a separate application for each one.
