“We really appreciate the matching grant as a great trial period for a student; many then progress into full-time em¬ployment, and we find a great transition between the internship and full-time!” — Kelsey Hallstrom, Virteva, Minneapolis

“Last summer we participated in SciTechsperience. With the leadership and technical expertise of our intern, Chandler, we accelerated our time to market. We are planning to participate in SciTechsperience again this summer.” Dan Davis, POPS! Diabetes, Stillwater

“SciTechsperience supports our strategy on bringing bright young people into manufacturing to strengthen our industry but in addition, allow these students to learn our industry and make a career choice they will be happy with for years.”— Kerry Barnard, Engineering Supervisor, UMC
