UC Berkeley Summer Program for High School Students

The Whitney Lab at UC Berkeley is offering a summer internship program for high schoolers.The goal of the internship programis to provide academically advanced high schoolers a hands-on research experience. Summer interns will be involved in every step of the research process, and will be working alongside Whitney lab members to create and test novel research paradigms. See the Whitney Lab research in the news on our facebook page.
This is an excellent opportunity to expose advanced high school students to the specific techniques and research equipment used at top-tier universities. In the summer internship, students will learn advanced computer coding and statistical analysis techniques that are fundamental to a successful career in all scientific fields. Additionally, students will be tutored in how to write up experimental results using professional scientific publication standards. 
Over the last two summers our interns collaboratively contributed to numerous research projects, many of which are currently being presented at national science conferences and/or are being submitted for publication in top-tier research journals.
Our admissions process is highly competitive, as we only accept a few students each summer. It is a fee-based program. However, we will consider underrepresented students in sciences (minority and/or low-income students) for a full fee-waiver.  If any of your students would be interested in learning more about our summer internship program, please direct your students to our website below.
