The RISE Intern Program is a paid internship opportunity for students (16 years of age at program start date) from selected Harford County Public Schools (HCPS) and Cecil County Public Schools (CCPS). The program is intended for those students with an interest in and aptitude for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) who lack the access to participate in local STEM program opportunities.
The internship provides a meaningful, in-lab experience where participants partner with professional engineers and scientists to complete results oriented work. Once completed, they will present their work to representatives of Aberdeen Proving Ground leadership, as well as leadership from local participating industry partners.
Interns are paid a stipend for the two-week session via the existing Oakridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) contract.
