Videography Internships Available for Fall 2017

The Fall 2017 Marin Science Seminar (MSS) Internship Application Period is now open. We will accept applications for videography internships from July 27th until September 20th, 2017. The internship period will run from approximately September 22nd until November 29th.


Medical Simulation at Marin Science Seminar
Explore science and technology, meet amazing scientists and medical professionals, gain experience for your resume and college applications, develop a portfolio! Our past interns are now students at or graduates of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, CalTech, Chico State, Harvard, Humboldt State, MIT, Northwestern, Scripps College, Seattle University, Sonoma State, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Santa Cruz.

Marin Science Seminar interns attend and assist with a minimum of 6 science seminars per academic year (there are 12 per year) during which they meet the speakers and assist with various logistical duties. Sessions take place on Wednesday evenings at Terra Linda High School in San Rafael (320 Nova Albion, Room 207) during the school year. Interns arrive the evening of a session at 7 pm and are free to leave once breakdown is completed (between 8:30 and 9 pm).

Videography interns record sessions, edit and upload session recordings, and create teaser videos for upcoming events. 

Interns may also research and create materials about event topics, create and distribute outreach materials, and engage in social networking and online development of Marin Science Seminar’s mission to attract more students to the fields of science, technology and math. Training is provided for some intern tasks.

Our internships are also offered in conjunction with the Marin County School to Career (StC) Partnership. Students attending a public high school in Marin County may apply for StC credit. Complete and submit a S2C internship application to your school's School-to-Career representative or visit them for the complete packet. About the Marin County School-to-Career Partnership

The Birth of the Universe, through Today's Telescopes

by Sandra Ning, Terra Linda HS

     A story is typically told from the beginning, but oftentimes the universe is an exception. As a society, time is measured in days and nights, hours, minutes, and seconds. But even more so, time is apparent to us through the peachy sunrise of dawn, the angry grumbles of an empty stomach at noon, and the fatigue that settles with the darkness of night. It's hard to imagine any of these things in relation to the universe, with its sleepless planets and nomadic asteroids, all swallowed up in an unimaginably large blanket of space. If the universe is a story, and all the galaxies, comets, and stars its characters, where does it all begin? 
     Luckily, scientists have already delved into the origins of the universe, and have resurfaced with new and exciting insights regarding these qu…

"Gnashing, Gnawing, and Grinding: The Science of Teeth" - An Interview with Tesla Monson of UC Berkeley

by Shoshana Harlem, Terra Linda High School

Dr. Tesla Monson studies mammals, especially their skulls and teeth. She is a researcher at UC Berkeley and has a BA in cultural anthropology, an MA in biological anthropology, and PhD in Integrative Biology. 

1. What made you want to study mammals?
Growing up in Washington State, I was always really interested in biological life, and particularly animals and plants. When I first learned about Paleolithic cave art in my undergraduate anthropology class, which is some of the oldest and most beautiful art, dated to more than 30,000 years ago, I became fascinated with the seemingly timeless question, "What makes us human?", "What makes me, me?, "What makes humans unique from other animals?" And "What makes non-human animals different from each other?" Because these questions are focused on trying to place humans within the context of evolution and life on this planet, and because humans are mammals, I have been …

All About Lysosomes

by Angel Zhou, Branson School

Lysosomes, discovered and named by Belgian biologist Christian de Duve, who eventually received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1974, are membrane-enclosed organelles that function as the digestive system of the cell, both degrading material taken up from outside the cell and digesting obsolete components of the cell itself. The membrane around a lysosome allows the digestive enzymes to work at the pH they require. In their simplest form, lysosomes are visualized as dense spherical vacuoles, but they can display considerable variation in size and shape as a result of differences in the materials that have been taken up for digestion. Lysosomes contain an array of enzymes capable of breaking down biological polymers, including proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids.

The lysosome’s enzymes are synthesized in the rough endoplasmic reticulum. The enzymes are released from Golgi apparatus in small vesicles which ultimately fuse with acidic vesicles ca…
