Intern activities at ORNL

Summer Student Safety Lunch

Dr. Thomas Zacharia welcomed us with a lunch exclusively to interns 2018 at ORNL to talk about safety at the lab. In his session, he emphasized in wearing the proper equipment during testings or any other task that requires the use specialized machines to work. We are around 700 interns at ORNL around the world for different divisions. ORNL offer hands-on experience onsite mentored by outstanding and experienced STEM professionals. That is an opportunity to expand your network and learn cutting edge technology by the hand of scientists. It was a great opportunity to meet other interns from diverse areas and hearing their projects was more than inspirational.

Career Connection Day 2018 

The day started with two inspirational talks by Dr. Lee Riedinger, who is  and  Michelle Buchanan who were not only well-recognized scientific leaders and researchers, they also shared the personal site of being part in this STEM world and how to grow up in both sides along our lives. I think they offer a touch talk and I learned from their experiences to be brave and thankful for all the things that happen in our daily.  I liked the food and I also was impressed by the number of panelists we had, most of them were women scientists. It was also offered a session to improve our CVs. Thanks ORISE!
