STEMchats is elated to have worked with our Interns through our first-ever Internship Program!
We received 153 applications and accepted 49 applicants to participate this summer. From July 20th to August 31st, our Interns worked alongside their respective Coordinators and Leads to further their team's goals, complete Intern-specific projects or goals, connect with the current STEMchats team, and grow their leadership and personal/professional skills through student-led workshops planned by the STEMchats Leadership Team!
Our STEMchats team is so excited to have had our Interns learn from us, us learn from them, and all of us work towards furthering STEM equity and our mission of shattering barriers in the STEM fields for underrepresented students! At STEMchats, we work to impact underrepresented youth by facilitating and creating opportunities for them to get involved in STEM, and we also greatly value building our own team members up along the way. The end goal of our Internship Program was for Interns to become permanent team members, and we’re excited to keep working with most of them! 🚀
Check back here soon to read about some of our Interns’ experiences, and stay tuned to our Get Involved page to learn about future opportunities to work with STEMchats!
