Title: Making Future Researchers: Internship Opportunities for Physics Students

Abstract

While the majority of students that pursue a physics education learn mostly in a classroom setting, hands-on experiences can take their appreciation of physics to the next level. Summer internships offer just that, hands-on learning experiences and a taste of what a career in physics is really like. Many research-oriented institutions offer summer internship experiences for students at all levels, from high school through graduate school. The experience and connections made during these summer programs can be transformative to a student’s career and science identity.
