Boston College Students

Thank you for your interest in The DevTech Research Group! The DevTech Research Group is hiring BC Undergraduate Students to work with us remotely and in person.

High School Students

Thank you for your interest in the DevTech Research Group! We love to have motivated high school students intern with us and we can offer letters of recommendation for college. As a volunteer with us you will be able to work on projects that will promote the use of coding and robotics for young children’s learning in different contexts. We are currently conducting interdisciplinary research that integrates learning technologies, such as KIBO and ScratchJr, with neuroscience, linguistics, and socio-emotional learning. At this time we are not taking on volunteers, check back here in the future for opportunities.
