Are there any internships/research opportunities given to those under the age of 16?
Answered

Hi, I'm a 15 year old junior in high school.

I've been wanting to take part in internships and research opportunities, but the age requirement always seems to cut off at 16. I've reached out multiple time and have asked if there could be an exception, but the response is always the same. And the few internships that do allow students under 16 are opportunities that have nothing to do with my interests, are not nearby, or are not free.

So, does anyone have any opportunities that I am able to do, preferably over the summer? And opportunities that are still open? I'm fine with remote opportunities as well.

I'm interesting in engineering/comp sci and biology but anything related to STEM would be great. Thank you!

Try your local college prof, if not try to publish your own research such as a short study of x plant/animals near roads compared to their counterparts in the wild.

This CollegeVine blog post lists several STEM research opportunities which you would be eligible for. I also recommend pursuing your own research project if you cannot find the right internship or research program fro you. Hope this helps!
