During the Summer of 2012, the Center for Urban Waters continued its successful Summer Internship Program for a second year. Research interns collaborated with UW Tacoma scientists and partner organizations on a variety of projects. In addition to providing a valuable experience for the interns, the research outcomes will serve ongoing research projects at UW Tacoma. The interns included current UW Tacoma students, as well as recent graduates of both UW Tacoma and the University of Puget Sound.
On September 13, 2012, the interns presented their work at a public event hosted at Urban Waters. Archive copies of their presentations will be posted below as they become available.
