“Even virtually, the 2020 summer virtual internship program was challenging and kept me engaged. My project was very relevant to current events and allowed me to develop skills outside of what I had done so far in university. On top of that, it challenged the notions I had about how much more research can be done without being in a lab. The talks and seminars presented by NRL and TWC were helpful, engaging and applicable to future endeavors.”
