2014 Teen Science Scholars

The Teen Science Scholars internship provides high school students with the opportunity to be mentored by Museum scientists in the areas of Anthropology, Conservation, Health Sciences, Paleontology, Space Sciences and Zoology. During the program, students will conduct and complete a scientific project and share their findings at a symposium and strengthen their research, communication, and other professional and technical skills. This research-focused internship is open students who will be entering their junior or senior year in the fall of 2014.


The 2014 Teen Science Scholars application process is now closed.  If you are selected as a candidate, you will be scheduled for a personal interview with the selection committee. Interview dates and times are to be determined. Final selection of Scholars will be made by May 6, 2014.

The Denver Film Society is a partner of the Teen Science Scholars Program. In Summer 2013, student filmmakers from the Denver Film Society directed a short film about the Teen Science Scholars. To view the film, please click here. This summer, we will partner again with the student filmmakers of the Denver Film Society as they document the stories of our teen scientists in the Teen Science Scholars Program.


The Denver Film Society also provides a series of Young Filmmaker Workshops where you can learn the art of film making and collaborate with other young filmmakers. Workshops are available to teens ages 12-18. Please click here for more information and to register.
