What I Learned on my Summer Internship - How to Work Alone

One of our summer Interns in electrical engineering was profiled in a story on the front page of Wall Street Journal today.

We were able to do some great work with our Interns this summer, whether that meant software coding done remotely, shipping them mechanical projects to work on remotely or having them work part time, safely,  in our lab (as Manjusha Chava did).
