About the Antaya Foundation

foundationwindow4

antayaweb Under the mentorship of former MIT Principal Research Engineer Dr Timothy Antaya, high school students interested in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) contribute to ongoing research projects for existing work contracts. The work contracts are with both major private corporations and public entities including the National Cancer Institute. In the process students will learn valuable technical and analytical skills, as well as gain insight into the scientific process.

An internship is an excellent opportunity for a student to gain real-world experience, build their resume, put classroom learning to work, and navigate their STEM career paths.
