    NIST offers unique research experiences that can set you apart from your college-bound peers. Students work with staff in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, materials science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, information technology, and computer science.

    During their tenure at NIST in Gaithersburg, MD, the students will not be paid, and are expected to provide their own housing and transportation. The program requires a commitment for a contiguous 8-week period (nominal hours of 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM) with a start date determined by the NIST research mentor. (A limited number of 6-week slots may be available.) This program is open only to United States citizens. NIST is an MCPS Student Service Learning Site operating in Gaithersburg, MD and Boulder, CO.
