From Community College Daily, July 26, 2021: Moraine Valley Community College in Illinois has six students participating in Department of Science internships this summer, four are at Fermilab. These ten to 16-week internships increase students’ confidence levels, offer professional development, technical writing training and networking with scientists.

The time has come to submit your job opportunities for Summer 2021 undergraduate and graduate interns. Please note that internships will be virtual as on-site laboratory access may still be limited. We encourage you to submit your job opportunities for these incoming interns no later than Feb. 26. Keep in mind these internships and fellowships should be engaging and allow the students to develop an advanced understanding of our work at Fermilab and unlock their potential as future STEM professionals….

It’s incredible to think that last year, Fermilab’s TARGET summer program for high school students turned 40. And this year, our Summer Internships in Science and Technology for undergraduates will see its 50th anniversary. If you’re looking for an extra helping hand on your experiment this summer, consider mentoring or advising TARGET or SIST intern. Postdocs, scientists, engineers, computer professionals are invited to submit research projects and commit to providing teaching, guidance and supervision.

From SDPB Radio’s “In the Moment: Innovation,” July 26, 2019: In this 18-minute radio piece, Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer discusses experimental particle physics, the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and the partnership with the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota.

Last year, rising high school senior Ketandu Chiedu from Walter Payton College Prep spent her six-week TARGET internship in the Fermilab Office of Communication. Working with her supervisor, Lauren Biron, she interviewed scientists working on the Fermilab-hosted Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment as part of the Faces of DUNE series. Mentor and mentee met up recently to discuss the internship program and what the future holds.
