Sujin Seo - Tucson Botanical Gardens Honors Internship

During the spring of 2017, I had the opportunity to pursue an honors internship at the Tucson Botanical Gardens. This internship was offered for honors students who are interested in learning about insects, their interactions with the environment, and providing outreach education to the public. During this internship, I helped run the Butterfly Magic Exhibit, interacted with the public, learned how to handle and care for butterflies and moths, collected and recorded data, and had the opportunity to help work on and research new exhibits for the public. I gained a new appreciation of plants and animals, and a deeper insight about the responsible and appropriate use of plants and water in a desert environment through education and demonstration.
I decided to pursue this internship as an opportunity to do something other than working in a typical laboratory while still learning about scientific research and the environment. It was great fun, and I highly encourage others to apply!
