The ASPIRES (Advancing STEM Pioneers In Research in Energy Sciences) summer internship program is a partnership between Berkeley Lab’s Energy Sciences Area (ESA) and California State University, East Bay (CSUEB), home to one of the most diverse student populations on the US mainland. This internship program matches undergraduate STEM students from CSUEB’s College of Science with staff across ESA for a 10-week paid internship.
We caught up with some of the ASPIRES interns from 2022 and 2023 to hear about their internship experience and what they’re working on!
