A Prized Catch: Three College Students Look Back on a Summer at the Woods Hole Science Aquarium

Adventurous, fast-paced, connecting, thought-provoking, dynamic, hands-on and positive. Those words described the summer internship experience at the Woods Hole Science Aquarium for college students Sarah Stanley from Springvale, Maine; Kelly Peyton from Chandler, Arizona; and Clara Stahlmann Roeder from St Paul, Minnesota.

As college interns, they spent 10 weeks this summer working with Aquarium staff on a variety of projects, from cleaning tanks, preparing fish and seal food and other chores, to developing posters and exhibits for Aquarium visitors, learning about the research underway at various science organizations in the village, and participating in activities with the eight high school summer interns.

None had been to Woods Hole before, and each experienced many “firsts” during their time here, from learning about new areas of science, seeing and experiencing the Atlantic Ocean, kayaking, and eating seafood to attending a professional soccer game and a whale watch, and learning more about themselves. It was a summer they will not soon forget, their “prized catch.”
