Internship Linking Service, or ILS, is a program developed to let FIRST Robotics Teams in the greater Atlanta area access unique opportunities to experience careers in engineering in the form of paid summer internships. High school students are required to provide basic information to interested businesses using our website, and communication between student and sponsor will continue from there without involvement from the WiredCats. The program is run with the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG), who helps to match students up with prospective companies.
These internships are all project-based so there will be lots of learning and great opportunities involved that will be beneficial for your futures in the technology world. We encourage you to take a few minutes to fill out the application (linked above) with thorough answers that will help TAG Education get to know you so as to better place you in an internship.
The program began at GRITS (GeorgiaFIRST Robotics Invitational Tournament and Showcase), in 2010, and in the summer of 2011, 60 students participated in the program. The program expanded to include spots for 100 students in 2012, and this number will continue to increase in future seasons. The WiredCats able to track the number of internship positions filled through a tracker, but there is no interference from the team.
