PSHS-EVC launched its initial run of the PSHS System's Science Summer Internship Program for the period of one month starting the 14th of April up to the 9th of May. The program is meant for incoming senior students of PSHS-EVC and is aimed at enriching the scholar's experience in the fields of
science, technologyand engineering. Students are expected to learn and apply the scientific principles behind the research projects, activities and other operations being made in participating institutions. The internship is meant to be an exposure for these students to the real undertaking of scientists.
Students need to accomplish a total of 100 working hours in their institution as part of the requirements for graduation. As this is the initial run of the program, many requested institutions were not able to accommodate scholars due to various reasons. Still, there were institutions who gladly welcomed the students.
