Silent Spring - Newton, MA
Major: Environmental Studies
I had a great experience at my internship at Silent Spring Institute this summer. I learned so much from the work I did assisting the researchers. From my mentors I learned about epidemiology, chemistry, and some environmental policy principles. I learned about the evidence for environmental causes of cancer, how to sample data and code it to be analyzed, and what makes a non-profit organization work. The people I worked with this summer were excited by their work and were eager to share it with me.
