Young Nebraska Scientists High School Researchers@headingTag>
Gain paid summer experiences in the labs of Nebraska scientist-educators. Mainly for high-school juniors and seniors, these jobs are typically part-time (<40 hours per week). YNS accepts "HSR" applications in early spring for a limited number of available positions. After the hosts make selections, YNS notifies the successful applicants (usually in April); work generally begins in early June and ends in early August. The student researcher and the faculty member decide the schedule, location, etc.
Being a YNS HSR is an excellent way to learn valuable new skills--such as coding--and extend your capabilities (sharing your work via research poster or other science communication is one expectation at the end of the summer). Plus, you'll gain a mentor and join the team of a real scientific project – wonderful for your college applications and/or resume.

"I liked being able to be part of an actual research lab and that the people in the lab didn't treat me like a high school student, or like I was inferior or didn't understand. They treated me like I was part of the lab and deserved to be there."
"Doing something with your own hands is the magical part, especially as a high schooler in a college lab. This expereince showed me how STEM can be applied, not necessarily in the classroom environment, but by solving real world practical problems and making an impact."
