The High School Science Research Internship Program is an informal partnership between the Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. 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. Each intern develops and researches a question of their own, designs protocols for data collection, and collects data over the course of the summer under the guidance of a professor, degree candidate, postdoctoral candidate or research associate. As the summer ends and during the fall semester, interns write a formal research paper and design a scientific poster. The concluding event of the program is a scientific poster session, which 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.
