A chance to do the unimaginable exists with an internship at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Through the internship, you can work directly with scientists and engineers.
About JPL Internship
In a broad sense, JPL uses robotic spacecraft, which have no humans on board, to investigate Earth, other planets, and the universe beyond.
Thousands of additional people are working on all the intermediate components that make Earth and space exploration possible and available to everyone, in addition to the engineers and scientists who design, build, and study spacecraft and the data they return.
This comprises specialists in the fields of finance and information technology, machinists, microbiologists, authors, video producers, designers, and more.

Does JPL Offer High School Internships?
The JPL Education Office assesses each year whether high school internships for the following summer are feasible.
JPL has been unable to issue an “open call” for suitable applicants since these internships have not been appropriately funded. Instead, it has collaborated with strategic partners to provide a limited number of internship opportunities.
Does JPL Offer Financial Aid?
No. But most programs include a stipend.
