  1. Hello, I am currently participating in the NEST Internship Program as a technology teacher intern at a technology high school, while I am working on acquiring my New York State teaching certificate to be a technology teacher. I am enrolled in the technology teacher education program at New York City College of Technology. I have a bachelor degree in Electronics Engineering Technology from DeVry College of New York. I still need to take the four state teaching exams, and I hope that all four of my final courses will be available in the Fall 2015 semester, in order for me to complete the program. I will also apply for the $10,000 NEST Scholarship for the Fall 2015 semester.

    1. Good luck to you, SparkIntelligence! I hope you find the NEST internship to be a rewarding experience. If you’re interested, you might share some of the take-aways you have about working in the program for our future applicants.
