What is an Xternship ? The Xternship is an opportunity for experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. It is also a limitless playground – a place to inspire future workforce talent focused on pushing the boundaries of human expectations, leading to greater impact for themselves and their future employers. At XPRIZE we complement our regular staff each year by partnering with students through practical work experiences related to XPRIZE’s business of inspiring radical scientific, technological, and social breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity. And we hope our Xterns take that spirit of inspiration and belief in the power of collaboration with them, wherever they go and whatever they do. There are grad student, college, and high school tracks, each of which provides opportunities for personal and professional growth, mentorship, and friendships that will last a lifetime. Testimonials Some feedback from the 2019 Xternship program: “My experience at XPRIZE was one of the most valuable experiences of my life. I was immersed in an environment where every single person was doing impactful work to improve and build our future. I got a first-hand look at the strategy behind the magic of how XPRIZE brings awareness to big challenges in our world, and then successfully creates solutions to tackle and foster innovation within that space. My ambition is to help at least a billion people in the world through technology and at XPRIZE I gained unique insight on best practices to do that.” “One of my biggest takeaways is that people are everything. XPRIZE is composed of extremely mission oriented people with an array of different skills, knowledge and frameworks of how they see the world. XPRIZE is able to catalyze solving the problems relating to climate change or adult literacy because the people are passionate about doing meaningful work as well as have a figure it out mindset when running into challenges.” Next steps?
