Internships

Highland Prep (HP) features a senior Student Internship Program as a way to help students gain valuable insight into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related fields. HP also believes that students who participate in such field-related experiences will increasingly choose, and participate in STEM careers. According to a recent study called “High School Careers”, 326 employers were surveyed about the importance of career development activities. Ninety percent of those companies indicated their belief that high school internships and volunteering help students get into better colleges, and 89% view that experience as providing students with a “competitive advantage in securing a college internship or full-time job” (Education Week, 2014).

After carefully defining the problem, teams design, build, and test their solutions while working closely with industry professionals who provide mentoring opportunities. Finally, student teams present and defend their original solution to an outside panel. This course is appropriate for 12th grade students.
