The work and accomplishments of 19 Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) summer interns were celebrated at a reception, held Sept. 26 in the Biotechnology Building.

From sturgeon research on Oneida Lake, to experimental rice trials in Freeville and Candor, New York, to investigating tick-protective clothing children will actually want to wear, the CCE summer intern program matches Cornell faculty and staff with CCE associations and programs across New York state to engage students in immersive summer internship projects.

Faculty are from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) and the College of Human Ecology (CHE), along with priority projects of the David M. Einhorn Center for Community Engagement.

“Cornell Cooperative Extension exists to create these connections and offer these opportunities – not just to our undergraduate students at Cornell, but to the county associations and communities across New York who benefit from their insights, talent and energy every summer,” said Jenny Kao-Kniffin, CCE interim director.
