Students are required to successfully complete a minimum of 200 hours of internship work while keeping a weekly reflection blog on their personal website. The blog is intended for students to showcase the work they are doing as well as provide a detailed log for instructor review. At the end of the second semester, students will submit a comprehensive video they have created, outlining their internship experiences while serving as an example of potential careers available in the STEM field.
