Youth Engagement through Science (YES!) Internship Program

If you love science and have ever wanted to work with zoo animals, feed tarantulas, examine fossils, help in a science lab or assist museum visitors, then this internship could be for you. Youth Engagement through Science (YES!) is a 12-week internship program for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors from the Washington, D.C. region. During the program, students get practical experience through a research internship with Smithsonian science staff, take exclusive behind-the-scene tours and field trips, participate in a college preparatory program and create an outreach project for communicating science to peers.
