Although I'll (hopefully) be attending university next fall, I would love to cut my teeth on some STEM-related work before then. However, I don't know what kind of jobs are open to a high school student. I've considered dropping in at the university in my town---it's hardly elite, but hey---and seeing if someone would be willing to take on a high school student as a lab assistant. Is that feasible? If not, what else is out there? I'm willing to consider volunteer work, as well.
