Inspiring the next STEM generation
Under STEMworks™ Internship Program, students (grades 9-12) have a unique opportunity to explore technical and professional development, and gain confidence in their ability to be a STEM professional. Much effort is placed on connecting the dots between STEMworks™ curriculum, software tools available in the classroom, and real world applications. It’s a win-win where young STEM and agriculture students gain valuable on-the-job skills while being able to network with industry professionals.
This annual internship program is held six weeks in the summer

Interns participate in weekly webinars to help them develop college preparatory and career readiness skills
Interns will receive a $1000.00 stipend upon successful completion
