Interning at an Observatory - any advice?

  1. Jan 10, 2013 #1
    Hello all,

    As part of the last semester in high school I am required to do an internship for a couple weeks at a place of my choosing. Even though astronomy isn't my intended major, I've been thinking that I might want to try and intern at an observatory somewhere around me.

    I have two questions targeting (probably) different people.

    Firstly, has anyone done an internship at an observatory before and if so could you possibly give some experiences or advice regarding the internship?

    Secondly, towards anyone who works or has worked at an observatory before, do you think that there is work do be done for an intern like me? I don't mind doing my share of classic intern stuff but I'd like to limit that as much as possible.

    Thank you all.
