Saturday Academy's Apprenticeships in Science and Engineering program matches high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors with scientists and engineers for 8-week summer internships in a professional scientific or engineering environment.  Most of the interns are awarded school credit for their work and an $1,000 stipend for the summer. 

Interns assist one or more professionals who serve as mentors and gain first-hand, pre-professional experience in the mentors' career field. Some interns work on a specific project that they can complete by summer's end, some interns contribute for eight weeks to an ongoing larger project, and some participate in multiple smaller projects and tasks that represent the range of work for that field of science or engineering.  We offer internships throughout Oregon, and support internships through a network of teacher monitors and ASE staff around the state.
