CCE Summer Internships 2013 Director’s Innovation Fund
Some words from the summer intern blogs: “Overall, my internship experience this summer was AMAZING! I learned soooooo much about beef cattle, meat quality, the beef industry and Cornell’s cooperative extension program and I’m incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity. I’m not really sure who (if anybody!) will be reading this blog, but if there’s any prospective interns out there looking for a great experience for summer 2014, I can’t even express how great this opportunity is – so you better take it!” -Mary Beth Hannon, Junior, CALS Animal Science, working with Dr. Mike Baker and Alleghany County CCE Director’s Innovation Fund
Some words from the summer intern blogs: “…I have been reflecting upon all that I have learned from this incredible experience. I began the summer with hopes of gaining both research and outreach experience by studying neuroscience and decision making. I can confidently say that those goals have been met...My major assignment in the lab this summer was to calculate, analyze, and summarize fMRI behavioral data using SPSS. At the beginning of the summer, however, all I knew about SPSS was that it can be used to store and analyze data. I now feel much more confident in my ability to analyze and manipulate data using SPSS. In addition to research in the lab, the outreach opportunities have been invaluable, as well. I learned a great deal about both myself and about neuroscience, health, and decision making from the several teaching opportunities I had over the past few months. From the combination of research and outreach, I have realized just how much work goes into developing and teaching curricula. Teaching the curricula, however, has proven that all the work and effort is well rewarded when the students enjoy and learn from the lessons. I am grateful for having this internship experience this summer.” – Deanna Blansky, CHE, working with Dr. Valerie Reyna and various CCE Associations Director’s Innovation Fund
