Boeing offers summer internships at their Huntington Beach facility every year to a limited number of Orange County high schools including Sunny Hills High School. Throughout the eight week program, interns engage in various projects ranging from conducting experiments in a chemistry lab to working on Boeing satellites. With the number of STEM jobs expected to grow to nine million by 2022, it is imperative that private companies encourage the next generation of students to pursue careers in engineering. Every year, Boeing does an excellent job exposing interns to different aspects of the aerospace industry.
