The 2021 Junior Fellows were busy for every minute of the ten weeks of their intensive summer internships, and below, you’ll find the blog posts that they wrote during their brief time in the program.

On top of their project work and the many blogs they published, the Fellows produced videos and infographics to showcase their research at the annual Display Day event. This year’s Display Day event was once again virtual, but a new, live component of the event–a ‘lightning round’ and Q&A session–allowed the Fellows to interact with an engaged audience via Zoom.
