Institute for Systems Biology High School Intern Program

One of the key objectives of ISB involves transferring knowledge gained through research to the community for the benefit of society.  The Baliga Lab meets and surpasses that objective through an education program in which high school interns help develop hands on instructional modules for students to use as part of their science curriculum.  Each January, the Baliga Lab posts a job opportunity on their careers website, enabling high school juniors to apply for a competitive, paid summer internship.  This internship is much different than typically found in research labs.  Systems biology allows students to work with many specialists, directly involving the students in a variety of projects, using many types of technology and techniques.  Students gain valuable microbiology, engineering, and computational experience.  Due to the unique nature of this curriculum building and laboratory experience, students are highly engaged in creative problem solving as well as both independent and group learning.  The internships are focused on bringing these key opportunities to students who typically would not have access to a professional work environment and a state-of-the-art research lab.

Pacific Science Center Discovery Corps

Discovery Corps consists of a system of training and assessment leading to increased levels of responsibility, pay and skill.  Pacific Science Center looks for motivated youth ages 14 and older who are interested in gaining job and life skills while volunteering and working to provide Pacific Science Center’s guests a unique and interactive experience.  Once a youth has completed approximately 100 hours of service learning, including training, as a volunteer, he/she will be assessed on skills and performance.  If expectations have been met, he/she may be promoted into a paid position (assessment periods and new hiring sessions will vary depending on staffing and the youth’s volunteer schedule).  This promotion includes increased responsibilities and more available training to assist with the continued development of skills.  Paid youth can continue to work towards further promotions within the structure of the program.  Discovery Corps is designed to support youth from the time they enter the program until they graduate from high school or an academically equivalent program.  Youth learn job skills and are exposed to numerous aspects of science, math, and technology which will hopefully inspire them to pursue careers in these fields.

Washington State House of Representatives Page Program

Since 1891, young people from across the state have come to Olympia to serve as pages for the Washington State House of Representatives.  Paging presents students with a unique educational opportunity to participate in the legislative process.  Selection as a page is a great honor.  Page duties are varied.  They range from ceremonial tasks such as presenting the flags to operational chores like distributing amendments during legislative sessions.  Each job is vital to the efficient operation of the Legislature.  As the week-long experience draws to a close and pages return to their schools and communities, it is hoped that pages will share their experiences and observations with others in an effort to contribute to a more universal understanding of the legislative process.  Applicants must be at least 14 years of age and have not reached their 17th birthday.

Washington State Senate Page Program

The Washington State Legislature has one of the finest page programs in the country.  Hundreds of students throughout Washington State have an opportunity each year to take part in the legislative process and observe the Legislature and other branches of state government in action.  The page is a helping hand during legislative sessions, which run from January through March or April.  Pages perform many tasks that allow senators and staff to focus on legislative duties.  Pages spend two hours each day in page school learning about the legislative process.  Applicants must be at least 14 years of age and have not reached their 17th birthday.
