Interns 2009

This week we are starting to wrap up our second successful summer internship program with the typical summer internship presentations and goodbye celebrations. Our recent posts about Detecting Planar Objects and Articulation Models and Breaking Eggs highlight just two of the many research projects that are starting to come to a close.

It has been a great summer -- we've had the pleasure of hosting and working with twenty-one talented students. This summer's students came from domestic and international universities, including Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon, ETH Lausanne, Princeton, University of British Columbia, University of Freiburg, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, University of Southern California, University of Pennsylvania, Rice University, and Stanford.

Since beginning the internship program two years ago, it's been exciting to watch the program grow from one student to the twenty-one we had this summer. I have enjoyed not only collaborating with the interns on projects, but also getting out of the office to have some fun. This year we caught some waves river rafting, tried to fly with indoor sky diving, and chased each other around in intern vs. mentor laser tag. I have made many friends this summer and hope to make many more in the coming years of the internship program.
