Matt's Story

Matt H. graduated from medical school last year at the University of California, San Francisco. His primary interest is in global health, and he recently utilized a Doris Duke Foundation grant to conduct community-based health research in rural Kenya.

Matt got his start as a participant in SCI://TECH:

I first explored my interest in scientific experimentation in seventh grade science class by developing a project to submit to the science fair. EfTA’s science fairs honed my interests…The extensive lab work I experienced through science fair projects helped prepare me to conduct independent lab research early in my undergraduate studies…EfTA’s science fairs provided me with opportunities to practice presentation skills and technical writing, and perhaps most importantly, fostered an ongoing sense of curiosity, of constantly asking, “Why?” I very much appreciate the opportunity created by Education for Tomorrow Alliance to start the process of scientific inquiry early in my education.

The SCI://TECH Expo is the flagship program of Education for Tomorrow Alliance.  It began as a partnership with the Conroe Independent School District and several private schools to provide volunteer support to the local science fair, and now offers 13 competitions including an Elementary Science Festival, engineering design competitions (robotics), and science technical writing.  The traditional junior and senior high science fairs remain a key component of SCI://TECH that encourage students to explore real-world questions that interest them through rigorous research, experimentation, summarizing of conclusions and practice of presentation skills. Each of the Expo competitions offers learning beyond the classroom and teaches critical thinking skills that will enable students to thrive in any career field.  Run by EfTA volunteers and local educators, the organization’s involvement in SCI://TECH saves the schools valuable resources, while reaching thousands of students each year.   SCI://TECH is the largest science fair in the Texas.

Each summer, EfTA’s Student Internship Program (SIP) offers bright, motivated rising high school seniors hands-on learning opportunities in their desired career fields. SIP internships are designed to provide valuable work experiences for students  who are just starting to explore career options.  The program offers a first step toward furthering their education and figuring out what direction students want to take in life.  In addition, the process of applying offers insights to the job search and introduces students to the value of networking and developing transferable skills that can eventually be included in a resume.  Education for Tomorrow Alliance partners with about 50 dedicated employers each year to offer each student 80 hours of professional experience that has the potential to shape their career paths.  EfTA seeks to give students hands on experiences that help enrich and support leaders of tomorrow.  

Student applications and information for Summer 2017 internships will be available on March 3.

Palmer's Internship Experience

One week after Palmer's internship, Palmer was hired by the Woodlands Economic Development Partnership (EDP) as an employee. The Woodlands EDP shared, "Palmer has done a great job and we are very fortunate for the quality students we get from EfTA every year. Congratulations on making this program what it is today!"

Student applications are now closed for Summer 2016 consideration.

2016 Student Internship Job Opportunities

Thank you to the 2016 Student Internship Program host companies:



What do you want to be when you grow up?  How can you get there? Who can help you along the way?  The Career Connections program offers monthly career development programming at Conroe High School to expose students to ways they can get those questions answered.  Professionals participate in monthly career panels to share their life experience and expertise with 10th and 11th grade students.  Whether students have a detailed plan for life or are still trying to figure out what happens after high school, the insights of volunteers in the workforce can prove valuable in helping encourage and shape tomorrow’s leaders.   

Sessions take place once a month during lunch at Conroe High School.  Meetings start with a panel discussion and Q & A based on the month’s topic where guest speakers share their honest feedback, and may follow with small group discussions or individual student activities.  This is an opportunity for professionals to share their personal stories.  Students explore topics ranging from finding a career passion to job forecasting.

The Future Focus program, formerly CHOICES, is a classroom-based curriculum designed to promote positive decision making among junior high school students.  Trained volunteer presenters offer interactive programming to help students realize that educational attainment today has lasting impacts on their options later in life.  It is meant to empower students that they have control over their daily decisions, as small as completing their homework and attending class, which can keep them on track for high school graduation and beyond over time.
