The Faculty of Science, University of Malta and the Department of Curriculum Management within the Ministry for Education & Employment are launching the Go4Research Student Internship Programme for scholastic year 2016/17.  The initiative engages 21 students who participated in the Malta Junior Science Olympiad (MJSO) that was held in November 2016, in research work related to their preferred field of science study.

This initiative aims to provide the participating students an opportunity  to explore different STEM career fields and areas of research.  The programme also facilitates students’ transition into further and higher education & training in STEM subjects and prospective careers.  The internship programme also targets to create better partnership opportunities between local STEM researchers/lecturers and young science students.

 

The official launch of the Go4Research Student Internship Programme is scheduled for Wednesday 8th March at John Borg Hall Science Lecture Theatre, University of Malta.
