Students with a passion for science have a chance to explore how science technology engineering and math (STEM) come to life in NYC. Each student's research project provides key background information that helps CityScience develop new K-8 curricula and make STEM engaging for future students.
High school students help CityScience fulfill its mission in a number of ways. Each internship is geared towards the schedule and interests of the student. One third of the student’s time spent at CityScience provides real world office experience while the rest of the time is dedicated to researching a topic of the student’s choice. He or she will create an annotated bibliography that provides valuable resources for curriculum writers such as projects, videos, vocabulary words, local experts, etc. High school students are encouraged to reflect on their own science education because they are often the best judges of engaging content.
