K-12 Student Resources


  • GTRI High School Summer Internships Georgia high school students who are at least 16 years old may be eligible to apply for five-week summer internships hosted in GTRI labs. Interns work on projects in GTRI laboratories and the Warner Robins field office with the goal of providing students with real-world experiences in science and engineering research. GTRI researchers mentor students by working with them on projects to engage them in first-hand STEM experience, with the goals of helping bridge the gap in Georgia’s STEM workforce by creating awareness of STEM career opportunities.
  • REAL (Research, Experiment, Analyze, Learn) The REAL program is composed of high school student researchers and has served as an initiative of the GIFT Summer Program since 2004. These students are from underrepresented populations in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education. During a 5-week period, students will experience and conduct research with their respective GIFT teacher in various university laboratories.
