BMM Testlabs welcomes STEM student as summer intern as part of its Next Generation Initiative

Gaming test lab and product certification consultancy BMM Testlabs has announced the addition of Kordell Schrock as a paid summer intern.

This move was powered through BMM’s Next Generation Initiative in collaboration with the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). The joint effort aims to create more opportunities for indigenous students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) programs, allowing them to gain practical experience by working alongside BMM’s team of test engineers in a gaming laboratory.

Kordell Schrock, an Engineering Intern, expressed gratitude for the chance to acquire valuable work experience at BMM’s Las Vegas headquarters during the summer. Schrock’s aspiration to enter the gaming industry led him to join his university’s STEM Scholars learning community.

He stated: “I even identified BMM Testlabs as my dream internship when I created my first individualized development plan in May 2019. I look forward to performing statistical analysis of game probabilities, reviewing system source code, and more with BMM’s expert team of test engineers.” 

Schrock, a descendant of the Meskwaki Nation (Sac and Fox Tribe of the Mississippi in Iowa), is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in Computer Science with a minor in Data Science at Iowa State University. He brings previous internship experience from Workday, the National Security Agency (NSA), and a research fellowship at Stanford University. The paid summer internship at BMM Testlabs will span ten weeks, commencing on June 1, 2023.
