Howard High School students enrolled in the Intern/Mentor course for the school year 2015-2016 are exceptional students who are passionate about a particular field of interest.  Intern/Mentor is a college-level course, which involves a scholarly research study and provides students the opportunity to intern for professionals in their fields of interest for five hours per week during the school year.  The goal of the internship is for the student to learn about the field and receive guidance regarding his/her research.  It’s a positive and valuable experience for both the mentor and student.
