Any Biology Internships for High School Students I could apply for?

Does anyone know of any biology internships for high school students that I could apply to in my local area? I live in the East Coast and am pretty close to some major cities. I want to gain some hands-on experience in the field before applying to colleges and selecting a major. Thanks!

There are definitely biology internships and opportunities for high school students on the East Coast. Since you're close to some major cities, I recommend starting by checking with local universities, research institutions, and biotech companies, as they often offer internships or summer research programs. Here are a few examples of programs and institutions:

1. Summer Science Internship Program at Boston University: Offers internships in a variety of research areas, including biology.

2. The Rockefeller University Summer Science Research Program (SSRP) in New York City: Allows high school students to work in a laboratory setting as a full-time research assistant.

3. The Johns Hopkins University Laboratory for Child Development's Summer Internship in Neuroscience/Biology: A research program in Baltimore, MD, focusing on cognitive neuroscience and developmental biology.

4. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory's Partners for the Future Program: This program is available for high school seniors in the Long Island, NY area who are interested in biology research.

5. National Institutes of Health (NIH) Summer Internship Program (SIP): Offers internships in various fields, including biology, for high school students at their main campus in Bethesda, MD.

These examples are just a starting point. You can discover more by searching online, inquiring at local universities or companies, and talking to your school counselor for additional guidance. Don't forget to also consider local science museums, botanical gardens, or conservation organizations—they may have volunteer or internship opportunities that align with your biology interests. Good luck!
