Job Description:

Selected students will be involved with various aspects of their mentors' research and/or collections programs, presenting an overview of their work at an annual symposium held at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science at the end of the summer. Teens who are from groups underrepresented in the sciences are highly encouraged to apply. (e.g., individuals who are first-generation college bound, Hispanic, Latino, African American, and Native American). 

Each summer, Scholars are engaged in various aspects of Museum research and/or collections work that strengthens their investigative and communication skills, and introduces them to a variety of science related careers. They develop a peer network of students from across metro Denver and beyond.
