Any suggestions on remote summer internship and research opportunities for high school juniors, 2020?
I am a high school junior at Mexico City and internships here, even without considering the current pandemic, are impossible to find. I am interested in physics/astronomy/astrophysics/mathematics/economics. Do you have any ideas of research or internship opportunities I may be able to get for summer 2020?

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Hi! Although I'm not from the area so I'm not aware of anything, I reccomend talking to someone about it like a science teacher. Also, if theres a company/business in your area with a focus on these interests, you might do a cold call and be able to get an internship, even if they aren't advertising for one. I wanted to get an internship this summer at a business I am interested in, and they had nothing available on their website, but when I called them they said they could work something out and I got an internship. Basically just be super proactive. It will probably backfire sometimes, but it will pay off in the end.
i don’t know how helpful this is, but many US colleges offer summer online courses for credit or online summer immersion programs (ie summer@brown, etc...) the deadline is coming up very soon but you can still consider applying! these are paid and they cost quite a bit depending on where you go, but financial aid is always available if you need it.
