The 11th Grade High School Science Research Internship Program is a partnership between MMSD and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 11th grade students from MMSD are partnered with researchers at UW-Madison each summer. The goal of the program is to provide an authentic science research experience for the intern. As the summer ends, interns design a scientific poster and the concluding event of the program is a scientific poster session. This allows the interns to communicate their findings to a larger audience and also to celebrate the completion of their internship with associates from the university, teachers, friends and family.
Participants will earn:
- MMSD academic credit
- One academic credit from UW-Madison which is funded by MMSD
- Wisconsin Youth Leadership Skill Certificate
