Every Summer, UTIG hosts and supports a group of enthusiastic and bright high school interns. These students help UTIG research scientists, post-docs and graduate students with on-going research projects. In turn, they gain valuable exposure and insights into the world of academia and research, working with state-of-the-art equipment and the best minds in geophysics.
