Any suggestions on remote summer internship and research opportunities for high school juniors, 2020?Answered
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?
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.
Many US colleges offer summer online courses for college credit or online summer immersion programs where you can take special high-school oriented courses for completion. The cost varies but most of these programs offer financial aid if you need it :)
I would suggest you try volunteering virtually for the American Red Cross.
