2000-2001 school year marked the first year we
have hosted work-based internships at the ASPIRE
offices and with the HiRes Cosmic Ray Research
Group. Two successful internships were completed
through the year at ASPIRE.
Alldredge, a senior at West High School in Salt
Lake City, completed a year-long study in computer
animation and video production. This project allowed
Andy to explore digital art and video as an interest,
and potential career, before spending money and
time during his college studies. The resulting
final project for the year was a video documentary
about breakdancing, a hobby that Andy and his
Lozada started an internship fixing computers
and learning some interactive web programming.
After completing his internship, Rodrigo began
working for the HiRes Cosmic Ray Group as a computer
internships are the result of a partnership with
the Applied Technology Education Program in the
Salt Lake City School District. Internship inquiries
can be directed to Julie
Callahan at ASPIRE.
