High School Student Research Internships at The Johns Hopkins University

Background: The
JHU MRSEC conducts extensive K-12 educational outreach programs aimed at
promoting interest in and awareness of the importance of modern materials
research. High school students from the greater Baltimore area receive
four-week internships each July to conduct research in the laboratories of the
JHU MRSEC. The students are mentored by Center faculty, and also work closely
with graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows.  At the end of the month, each student gives a
20-minute talk describing his/her project at a symposium attended by MRSEC
researchers, friends and family, and teachers from the students’ schools.
