Today the Akamai interns of the Hawai‘i workforce initiative give their presentations at the ‘Imiloa Astronomy Center in Hilo. Their original presentation was canceled due to then Hurricane Iselle. Gemini staff were given the opportunity to hear these presentations ahead of everyone else, and we wish them luck in their talks today, and in their future adventures. Keep a sharp eye out as it is likely these students will be back, many former Akamai interns have found jobs working at Hawai‘i’s observatories.
At the end of their internship with us, they had the rare opportunity to visit our summit facility, and meet two former Akamai interns.
