2017 Interns

2017 Internships

This year twelve students from our EVOLUTIONS program were chosen to participate in internships. In this highly selective program students were able to study differing topics under professionals in their fields. Our students took advantage of this opportunity and took their new expertise to the next level by presenting their research at the annual Internship Symposium and sharing their newfound knowledge to their friends, families and communities. These were some of the internships that took place during the summer.
