Greater Good: Successful High School Interns

2013 High School Interns

Every summer, ISB welcomes a group of high school interns, hosted through our Systems Education Experiences program. ISB is proud of its collaborative and cross-disciplinary culture and we work hard to nurture an environment that allows our staff to achieve at a high level. It was especially gratifying to get this comment from one of our interns, who had just completed her time here:

“At ISB, I witnessed collaboration that was very intentional and reciprocal. I think this is based on two fundamental concepts. Firstly, everyone seems to have a good understanding of their own strengths and skills, as well as those of all their colleagues. Knowing what other individuals specialize in gives people direct access to tools and knowledge that they themselves are not as familiar with. Secondly, I saw a unity at ISB that pushes scientists and other employees towards common goals of furthering scientific knowledge and benefitting humanity and the environment through biological innovations and findings. With that said, helping others with their projects and challenges ultimately gets the scientific community closer to achieving these goals, so people seemed excited to contribute to a variety of tasks even if they were not their own.”
