The purpose of this paper is to present a unique case study that combined online training with a biomedical laboratory internship for a secondary school student. This case study outlines the positive experience for one student in a unique research laboratory setting. The participant reported on the usefulness of the online materials, including video tutorials, to demonstrate basic techniques prior to their demonstration in the laboratory. The initial findings suggest that online training materials complemented with traditional science internships may increase the efficiency of training and reduce perceived burdens of allowing younger students into authentic laboratory settings.
