BEST: Building Excellent Scientists for Tomorrow Internships for High School Students
This Building Excellent Scientists for Tomorrow (BEST) program is for high school students interested in pursuing careers in science and technology-based areas. This is not a residential program. The program is run by Continuing Education in conjunction with the Center for STEM Education. Interns research in labs throughout the Peoria area for a required total of 150-300 hours for the duration of the program. They work side-by-side with top researchers and their teams to learn first-hand about the research process. Interns will also receive additional training in scientific methods, research ethics safety and related topics in a three-day-long orientation at Bradley University. Students must be at least 15 years of age to apply. If you have questions, contact Sherri Morris, Ph.D., at email@example.com.
