Last summer, Ransom Everglades students assisted with spinal cord research, learned and applied computer code, created art for a gallery, worked for the Department of Homeland Security, interned with a U.S. Congresswoman, served as teachers. Those represent just a few of the impressive internship experiences that will be showcased from 6-8 p.m. Feb. 1 during the school’s 4th Annual Internship Forum at the Lewis Family Auditorium.
This growing event will highlight the 2016 summer internships and experiences of over 25 students. The goal is three-fold: to celebrate the great work that RE students are doing over the summer, inform other students, parents and alumni about what kinds of opportunities are available, and encourage more parents and alumni to host current RE students in summer internships.
The event will start with beverages and hors d’oeuvres outside the auditorium and a short introduction to the event. Participating students will then be available to discuss their summer experiences in a poster session. You will have an opportunity to peruse the posters and engage with the students. The students will be available with their posters until around 8 p.m.

Interested in Hosting an Internship?
We are looking for individuals, organizations, businesses, science labs, etc., willing to host RE Upper School students over the summer. This would be a great opportunity to give current Ransom Everglades students the opportunity to get hands-on, practical experience in a field in that they may be interested in the future.
We are looking for project-based and/or research-based activities in which students can be involved over the summer for four to eight weeks, ideally between mid-June and early-August. We especially value work with RE alumni and parents in all fields and locations near and far.
If you are interested in hosting an internship, or just want to discuss, or learn how to apply for an internship, please visit our website.
