Internship for inexperienced students?

In summary, the person is a junior in high school and is planning to take the CHSPE for early entry into a 2-year college. They are looking for possible internships, even in unrelated fields, to gain experience. They mention their goal of becoming a cosmologist and ask if there are any internships available for someone with their lack of experience. They mention that they have checked other forums but found no suitable ones. The expert suggests looking into NASA and national labs such as Fermi and Los Alamos, which offer internships for high school students and sometimes for those in two-year colleges. However, it is unclear if the person would qualify since they will not be a student until the fall.

Hello. I'm a Junior in Highschool and will be taking the CHSPE for early entry to begin a 2 year college in the fall. Are there any possible internships that someone with my (lack of) experience would be able to apply for? It could be book keeping or something nearly irrelevant so long as I'm working for a business that will give me experience in the field (even a small amount or from a distance.) there didn't seem to be a better forum to post this in. Also, my goal is to become a cosmologist.Sent from my iPhone using Physics Forums

I know that NASA and some national labs (Fermi, Los Alamos) have internships for those who are still in high school. Many of them also have internships designed for people in two-year colleges, however I'm not sure that you would qualify since you will not be a student until the fall.
