In with the Interns at Phipps

By Lorren Kezmoh, Outreach Coordinator, Phipps Science Education and Research

From tending garden beds and arranging exhibit displays to whipping up their own unique culinary creations, our high school interns are keeping busy this summer here at Phipps! 'In with the Interns' is a segment featuring our 2015 high school interns; this segment will explore what they do, learn and experience this summer during their internship. This week we will hear from two of our interns as they describe what the best part of their internship has been so far.

"This week was very inspiratonal to me. We took a tour of the East End Food Co-op, I saw that they had a very broad array of food, with 90% of it being organic, and the prices were comparable to that of a traditional grocery store. I even bought food and produce that wasn't very expensive at all and was able to make my lunch from it." - Aaron Sledge

"This week we worked with the YMCA summer camp program and got the chance to work with 7-9 year olds. It was really fun because of how much I like kids and it just solidified how much I enjoy working with, talking to, and even just being around them." - Kiya Blye
