At Life Academy, all of our 11th- and 12th-grade students participate in an internship related to the health and science fields.  As part of this internship, they need to keep a blog of their experience, and design a research project which can be investigated on the job.

The internship blog is located at lifeacademyinternships.ning.com. At present, access is by invitation only.   If you would like an invitation to the blog, please click on the link and follow the instructions given.
