Program Member Interns at NOVA
September 28, 2011
STJR student Christina Sumners' dream was to work with NOVA. Her
internship allowed her to do so.
This summer, Christina went to Boston to do a 10-week internship
at NOVA. This science-themed television series has won multiple
awards since it started in 1974. It is produced by WGBH, a leading
public television station.
"I had an amazing time," Christina said. "NOVA is a wonderful
place to work."
Christina says that her internship allowed her to put her
writing and research skills to use. For example, she researched and
blog posts on animal cognition for the website
She also took part in the planning and research that go into
creating NOVA episodes. She fact-checked a script, found props, and
even appeared as an extra.
Christina plans to graduate in December. She hopes to work as a
researcher or writer for a science television show.
