Anyone know how to get an internship/research opportunity as a fresh high school graduate in a science/research facility? I know colleges offer those summer internship programs (ie. UC Davis COSMOS) but what kinds of volunteer/etc. opportunities are there for an 18 year old with no (scientific) job experience? I live in the Boston area btw. Also, for undergrads, how the hell do you get a research opportunity with a professor/graduate students? I read about freshmen doing lab work with professors and the like all the time. How do you qualify? I have the right knowledge of math, chemistry, and physics (but only limited to what a junior learns in university) plus knowledge of how to handle basic applications like PCR, DNA sequencing, and everything else every high schooler knows, I just don't have the resume. What kind of things should I have if I apply to such a position (CAD models, etc.)?
