Host a High School Student!
By Linda Alf
SLAC is participating in the Industry Initiatives Students in Math &
Engineering (IISME) Program to host high school students this summer.
These students will receive a stipend from a California grant so there
is no cost to SLAC. The programís goal is to encourage and prepare girls
and underrepresented minority students in pursuing course work and
extracurricular activities that will lead to a college degree in
science, technology, engineering or math (STEM).
Internships Start July 6
We would like the students to be placed in areas at SLAC where they can
receive hands on experience with science, technology, engineering or
math. Students will hold short internships for 16 hours per week for
four weeks beginning July 6 (Tuesday -Friday, 4 hours per day). The
students will be seniors next year and will have completed algebra I and
II, geometry, chemistry, physics and (usually) biology.
The students are participants in a mathematics/science enrichment
project that targets four Silicon Valley high schools, offering
curriculum enrichment, summer internships, a summer science camp, high
school engineering course (in development), visits to local colleges and
