PVNet Internships are entirely customizable and centered around YOU.
Interns have the freedom to explore and find something that genuinely interests them. Our internship program offers a multitude of specialized workshops, projects, field trips, and discussions that are available to interns only.
Interested in coding? Computer games? Graphic design? Robotics? Video editing or production?
We have all of that. Take a class, learn the basics, and if you don't like it, move on to the next. If you find yourself intrigued and enjoy it, start researching, planning, and creating. Go in depth and complete a project. By yourself, or with fellow explorers. With access to the largest collection of technology in the South Bay, there is so much to choose from!

Work On Your Capstone!
High School Interns may utilize their time & resources here at PVNet to work on their own Capstone Project in conjunction with your school's AP Capstone Program.
Students will have access to expert advisers & technologies found only at universities and used by undergrad and masters students, which opens the door to a masterful & unique Capstone!
Opportunities Are Limitless!
PVNet Interns registered in our Technology Immersion Program may work on their Capstone project & utilize a vast array of resources & technologies to develop their capstone project. Two birds, one stone: complete your Capstone with flying colors AND mark this advanced tech internship on your resume.
Interns may petition to join on-going research projects & incorporate their work into their Capstone.
Working on your Capstone is treading new waters, we know. It's new to us too! Give us a visit before the end of AP Seminar and we can figure it out together. Make the most of the fall semester so you can lessen your workload (& stress) when graduation approaches.
