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's theme was "Local Issues" and I am very glad that I had the chance to learn about different environmental issues taking place right at home. Sometimes it feels like we are only told about what happens globally, it is great to know what is happening at home because you have to start with 'you' before you can change the world. This week at Phipps really opened my eyes to that." - Imani Jai Chisom

"This week I had the chance to shadow the horticulture staff member Susan. I learned about her job here at Phipps and also about the citrus trees she tends to in the greenhouses and Fruit and Spice Room." - Allani Mosley
