RSC Internships

 

There are many internship opportunities for high school and college students at the RSC. Student have the opportunity to participate in ongoing research projects which give them field and laboratory experience. These experiences will set high school students apart from their peers when applying for college programs, and college students will receive hands-on experience that will make them more qualified candidates when looking for jobs after graduation.

 

Sean Dalton, alumnus of Allegheny College, completed a summer internship at the RSC in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Sean studied long shore drift of sand and the impacts of erosion on Presque Isle State Park for his senior thesis. His work has directly benefited the RSC and many other stakeholders to the park. Sean also worked on several projects including bacterial analysis of water samples, flow cytometry, and fish and amphibian surveys.
