Externships are designed to equip teachers with experience and a social network of fellow educators that address real-world project and problem-based tasks that guide learning experiences for students as they enter into a rapidly changing world.
February 2021 Externships
We'll see you online!
This year, we are thrilled to offer two exciting externship opportunities over the February break. Each opportunity will take place from February 16-19, 10 am-3 pm.
1. Lifesciences - Join Schrodinger, Novartis, and Eli Lily in following the drug development cycle with a special focus on the development of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Externs will get a crash course in the content surrounding the processes each company participates in. They'll also have an opportunity to participate in a career panel focused on how BPS students can work in the Life Sciences industry and what's available to them.
2. Cybersecurity - Rapid7, Dell, and the Federal Reserve are excited to team up and share with externs all things cybersecurity. They will cover both what cybersecurity is exactly and how students can begin a career in the field. They'll cover things like digital citizenship and how each of their organizations deals with cybersecurity in a unique way. Cybersecurity externs will also have the opportunity to participate in a career panel.
