Trevor Shepherd Externship at Idaho National Laboratory

Idaho National LaboratoryThis summer I assisted as a mentor of high school CTE Interns. A group of 20 high school students were hired by the INL as summer interns to learn about the INL and future job opportunities. We would spend each week of this 6 week internship at a different site or location of the INL. At each location we would work with the different trades employees and learn what they do to support the experiments and studies performed at the labs. It is awesome learning about nuclear and other forms of clean energy. The students get a lot of hands on experience with all the different tradesmen at the sites, so they can learn what kind of work someone may do and how to get into a job like that. As a student I helped facilitate the experiences with the students and worked along side them.
