Hello again forums, long time no chat. Happily, I've returned though.

I'm almost done with my junior year in high school, and was wondering where I could find any science related opportunities (internship, job, academic programs) in my area. Where would I start searching? I live in the DFW metroplex in TX, but can't seem to find anything close by. More importantly, it's hard to find any program still taking applicants for this summer. Distance doesn't matter too much, but timing does.

Where would I start my search? Do you all know of anything?

First, you can check with your high school guidance counselor or science teachers. They may have information about local programs or connections with organizations that offer internships or academic programs.

You can also do a quick online search for "summer science programs for high school students in DFW area." This will bring up a list of programs that may be available in your area. Be sure to read through the program descriptions and requirements carefully to see if you meet the eligibility criteria and if the program is still accepting applications.

Another option is to reach out to local universities or research institutions. Many of them have summer programs specifically for high school students interested in science. You can also check their websites or social media pages for any announcements or updates on summer programs.

Lastly, you can also consider virtual or online programs. With the current pandemic, many organizations have shifted their programs to a virtual format, which may allow you to participate from anywhere.
