PVNet internships are offered at the following levels:
PVNet internships are entirely customizable and centered around YOU.
Interns have the freedom to explore and find something that genuinely interests them. Our program offers a multitude of specialized workshops, field trips, and discussions that are available for interns only.
Interested in coding? Computer games? Graphic design? Robotics? Video editing and production? We've got it all. Take a class, learn the basics, and if you don't like it, move on to the next. If you find yourself intrigued, 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!
Our goal: To prepare interns for future careers that will exist in the next 5-15 years. This program encourages innovation and invention. Our track record of partnerships proves it!

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 spring semester so you can lessen your workload (& stress) when graduation approaches.
