About Junior Internship
All High Tech High juniors are required to complete an internship in a local organization. The internship consists of an orientation followed by a four week, full-time immersion at the work site, concluding with the intern’s presentation of learning. Students receive credit for successfully completing their internship and related course work.
Each student is paired with a workplace mentor who understands and supports the goals of the program. Mentors communicate regularly with a HTH Teacher Advisor about student progress, attendance, and project development.
All interns develop a substantial project(s) with the mentor that contributes to the organization.
Near the end of the internship, each intern presents his/her work and overall learning to a panel of mentors, other site employees, and a small group of student and staff representatives from High Tech High. This culminating event celebrates the student’s accomplishments and offers an occasion for reflection and critique.
The site experience is supported by a seminar back at school prior to internship, where students are introduced to workplace skills and conduct.

Internship Thoughts before
Dr. Kauffman's Research Lab
For my internship I hope to get excepted to be a part of the research team at UCSD with Dr. Kauffman. He works at UCSD looking at the differences between a male brain and a female brain. I want to be a part of this because I really want to go into a biology field when I go into college. I think that this would be a really good experience and exposure to what working at a lab all day would really is like.
