  • Are you a 10th, 11th & 12th grader interested in STEM?

    Meredith College
     
    Students,
    You know how important it is to support women in STEM fields. And while women working in STEM have made great strides, they continue to be underrepresented in many areas.

    Meredith STEM College is a unique opportunity for 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade women to explore and develop their science interests.

    Students selected for the program participate in six in-person weekend workshops and a two-week residential summer experience on Meredith’s campus. They also earn three college credits and connect with peers, faculty, and professionals who share their interests.

    Why Meredith?

    • Meredith’s emphasis on strengths-based education for women is particularly valuable for undergraduate students pursuing careers in STEM.

    • Research suggests that your college environment can significantly impact your success in STEM majors. At Meredith, we’re experts in helping women succeed.

    Thank you for all you do to support your students. Please contact me if you have any questions. Or if you'd like to pass along the link to apply for please do so.

    Sincerely,

    Julie Kolb
    STEM College Director
    Meredith College Mathematics Faculty
    (919) 760-8147
    kolbjuli@meredith.edu

    P.S. The workshops begin in December 2022 and are held throughout the spring, leading up to the summer learning experience in June 2023.

  • Paid Internship for High Schoolers in Computer Science! 


    ShapeDescription automatically generated with medium confidence

    Ready, Set, App! is looking for high school interns!

     

    The North Carolina Business Committee for Education in partnership with Lenovo is proud to present the 4th Annual Ready, Set, App! competition. This is a mobile app building competition open to all NC high schoolers. It serves as a great opportunity for students to develop skills in design thinking by having them find creative and innovative solutions to problems in their community.

     

    Each year Ready, Set, App! employs five high school interns to act as peer mentors to the teams in this competition. They will work alongside the teams to offer support as they navigate through the competition. This support can be technical support, like helping to troubleshoot code or map out designs, or it can be non-technical support such as advising on time management and delegating workloads. We are looking for students with both the technical and interpersonal skills to be successful in this position.

     

    This is a paid internship and a great opportunity for students to get real work experience. We encourage all interested students to apply. To be eligible you must be a 9th – 12th grade student enrolled in an NC high school. The internship will run through both the Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 semesters. Applications are due October 14th, 2022, at 11:59 PM.

     

    To apply to be an intern, visit www.ncbce.org/ready-set-app.

     

    For any questions, please reach out to Ciera Tucker, NCBCE Program Manager, at ciera.tucker@nc.gov.
