Student Internship Orientation

Thursday, June 2
About 30 New Mexico high school students will be at CHTM as part of their orientation for their upcoming student internships at UNM. Most students are from Albuquerque.

Orientation schedule:
9-10 a.m. - Introductions, info and working in a lab
10-11 a.m. - Safety briefing
11:00 a.m. to Noon - CHTM tour (TBA)

Thanks to Stefi Weisburd, Outreach and Education Manager with the School of Engineering, for her hard work in matching students with faculty and the right opportunity for them. Ms. Weisburd says, “Beyond technical expertise, internships teach students non-cognitive skills, improve their math, presentation and interpersonal skills, and introduce them to the university culture as well as help them feel more comfortable in it.”

Most students will be interning in the School of Engineering. A few will be placed in the Chemistry department, and possibly Physics and Astronomy. Other possibilities for placement include north campus with Diane Lidke, Christina Salas and perhaps others, including a neurologist.
