MBARI welcomes our 2013 interns. The intern program is designed to provide professional development opportunities to college students and educators. From over 200 applications, 18 undergraduate and graduate students were selected.  They come from around the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Colombia. The interns are highly motivated, curious, and ready to work on projects in areas such as science illustration, ocean chemistry, chemical sensors, and geospatial database administration. Diane Wyse, a student at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, is returning for a second year internship. She will be using chemical sensors to characterize plankton community dynamics. Diane says, “Being an intern at MBARI is an incredible experience. The resources, people, and opportunities to learn about research within my field of oceanography and beyond are unparalleled.”
