Getting an internship at Brown

I am a high school student and I would really like to work in the labs doing research over the summer at Brown. I honestly have no idea how I would do that though, or if it is possible. Can someone clue me in on how I would go about doing this?

    72 people have looked, but not one knows?

    We primarily, if not entirely, use up research spots for undergraduates here. The only instances of high school research at Brown I know if is a single professors son. If you want to try, you can attempt to contact someone who's research your interested in and see if they're willing to take you in, but I find that unlikely.

    Really? Where I go to school we have a lot of people doing research at Columbia. Ido my research at a public ny college but a lot of people do it at columbia (at least 15)

    Brown's small graduate school is sized to perfectly augment our undergraduate population. We tend to have an undergrad at least in every lab over the summer and so there aren't many spots left for high schoolers. I haven't seen it here, though I did high school research at a public U.
