Program Dates: July 2nd – July 27th, 2012

About the Internship
Over the course of a four-week program, interns will work collaboratively to investigate the intertidal zone in the Boston Harbor Islands. The student work is part of an ongoing ecological assessment and non-native species monitoring effort conducted by MIT Sea Grant in collaboration with the Boston Harbor Islands National Parks Service.
Students will gain valuable hands-on experience in the field of marine ecology. Interns may also have the opportunity to work with engineers, biologists and/or policy experts who design, build and utilize autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).
