The Soil Quality Project is an amazing hands-on learning experience. My internship was a great way to develop my research portfolio while learning about soil science and spending time with passionate scientists. Field sampling outdoors and chatting with the team while sieving the soil were my favorite times. I learned so many useful skills, including how to work within a team, follow lab procedures, design a study, pay attention to details, and have fun!
