Kirstin’s thoughts on the value of working at CES: 

“The internship opportunities that I have had through CES have been central to my Washington College experience. I have developed an exciting set of professional skills ranging from managing webpages and social media platforms to working on real world problems as part of a team. Everyday I learn something new, meet someone new, or have a hands-on experience like collecting leaves from different trees in our area to create a Tree Identification Key for local teachers. I have improved my interpersonal skills by working with and educating people through activities such as Build-a-Buoy and Aquabotz, my writing skills by creating website content, and presentation skills by presenting research at a conference. I have learned so much from working at CES, gotten to explore my interests, try new things, and have meaningful experiences that I can discuss and build on when applying for jobs in the future. Plus, I’ve had a lot of fun!”
