Last week my internship students left our group to go back to their respective institutions. Being the first ones to do this activity in our group, I feel a bit sad for their departure. Although I could not spend as much time with them as I would have liked to, I hope they enjoyed staying with us for these past 7 weeks. The three students will continue participating posting news in our outreach webpage. Thanks to them, our science related news reach approximately 1,700 people every day (Facebook statistics). I hope their internship help them see what someone doing a research projects has to do on an veryday basis, the good and the bad things. From my part I was very happy to have them in our group, they surely brought a more active routine to all of us.
In Mexico exists at least three different programs that fund summer students, so I hope they are just the first of many to come.
