Current Cohort (2021)
Meet our 2021 Summer Research Interns!
This year as we slowly emerge from the shadow of Covid-19 we are so happy to welcome our new group of interns! They are off to an amazing start, having moved into campus housing and hit the ground running as far as data collection and field research. They are currently collecting data from over 40 milkweed planting sites (sites they've planted) as well as Cook County Forest Preserves and Chicago Park Districts sites.
In addition to their research work, they are also participating in cultural connections. Connecting culture and science in various ways, including dialogues with UIC's Latino Cultural Center. The students also have a podcast this year that they record weekly with topics spanning a wide spectrum, from stigmas students in biology face to trending topics.
Join them on their journey!
