Mentor/Internship Network

One of the main goals of Science Resources is to facilitate the interaction between students and local science & engineering businesses, institutions, and professionals. We do this through our programs, as well as by helping students find local mentors and internship opportunities in their field of interest and by linking local organizations with student groups. Please contact us if you or your organization is willing to mentor, offer internships, or provide employment/co-op/volunteer opportunities to students in the areas of science and engineering. We also maintain online links to local science programs and organizations at . Contact us at about our Network.
