There is a question of how old do you have to be and how much experience do you have to have to do science? The answer is: not very old, and not much experience if you’re put in the right setting. – Robert Costello, NMNH National Outreach Program Coordinator

DC High School Junior Asia Hill has been learning to map the genomes of planet species from around the world through her Youth Engagement through Science (YES) internship with the Smithsonian’s Museum Support Center (MSC).

Asia didn’t expect to be doing so much during her internship, but now that she has the connection, she intends to do more. You can find out more in a recent WUSA9 report here.
