Opportunity for Summer Internship:

We are in the process of ramping up our STEM summer internship program, and we have recently received applications for 10 internship opportunities for students in Augusta at Rural Sourcing and Zapata Technology.
We are so excited to expand this program statewide, but unlike the metro area, we need help getting student applicants from this area to fill these positions.
Do you possibly know any teachers and /or administrators that might want be willing to encourage their students to take advantage of this opportunity? Students will receive $1000 for their 5 week STEM project based internship and will work 25-30 hours a week.
