Each intern has specific project-related deliverables due at the end of the summer. You will create an oral presentation and a professional scientific poster of your research and present them at the final summer colloquium and poster symposium for staff members and the broader Boulder scientific community. You may also have the opportunity to present your work at a scientific conference, pending the approval of your research mentor and acceptance of your abstract and the status of the COIVD-19 pandemic. Your summer research presentations will also be included on the RESESS website. 

Deliverables due during the summer include, but are not limited to:

  • Bio:  a short 4-sentence paragraph answering the following questions:
    • What’s your major and what institutions are you from? 
    • How did you become interested in geosciences?
    • What was your project this summer?
    • What are the implications for your work?
  • Abstract – Summary of your summer work, 250-word maximum. To be created during your writing workshop. With science/faculty mentor consent, may be submitted to a science conference. 
  • Technical Manuscript – Research paper covering your summer project. To be written in conjunction with your technical writing workshop and science mentor.
  • Scientific Poster – Original, editable version and PDF version of your end of summer poster presentation. Posters will be printed and presented at the intern poster symposium.
  • Colloquium Presentation – PowerPoint version of your end of summer oral (virtual) presentation.
