Program Member Interns at NOVA

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 wrote several blog posts on animal cognition for the website InsideNOVA.

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.
