The University of Nebraska at Omaha College of Information Science and Technology's Summer High School Internship Program will give you an innovative, hands-on experience directly in our labs. You’ll work alongside our faculty and students in areas such as robotics, bioinformatics, software engineering, information assurance, public health informatics, database-driven web development, IT innovation, open community participation research lab, music informatics, iOS/Droid app development, gaming lab, and others.
You will learn the fun and excitement of scientific research and development activities as well as explore potential careers in IT. Our internship will give you the opportunity to learn new concepts, tools and skills, work on real research and help solve development problems.
Exposure to computer science and IT careers can lead to some of the best-paying jobs in the world. But, many students don’t even know that IT is a possibility for them.

"I learned more in my internship experience than I could have ever done in any high school class. Working alongside college students provided me with a little bit of what it is like to be on a professional business team working to make an application for the real world in a safe and helpful environment."
"Even if someone doesn't know if they want to major in the IS&T field they should definitely try out this program! It teaches more than just programming, it teaches you how to work in a team setting, work on real life projects, and how to problem solve!"
"In working on a team and brainstorming ideas to be a part of a decision making process I feel more empowered to work in a professional environment."
"My favorite part of the internship summer was the collaboration and the encouragement to keep learning more. I was always learning new programming techniques and new languages which is valuable. The internship prepared me for college by helping me meet professors at IS&T and getting good advice about which classes to take from students already in the major."
