High-School Summer Internships

Paid summer internships for high-school students help them get a head start on ocean industry careers.

During our immersive six-week summer internships, high-school students get the chance to work on exciting real-world projects with host company teams. Students gain hands-on experience with the latest technologies, build their work portfolios and explore their potential career interests. Company mentors grow their coaching skills, get unique insight into their projects, real hands-on intern contribution to their work, and possibly a future team member.
