One possible place that I highly recommend is at NASA. They do paid internships for both high school and college students. This is a site where it may give you some background. http://www.nasa.gov/offices/education/centers/johnson/student-internships/ If you are not Johnson Space Center then find your nearest NASA facility and call the Public Relations / Community Affairs and they can point you in the right direction.
