“I enjoyed every single second of my time at UCSC. The SIP experience really deepened my understanding of how much I have a passion for the STEM fields. It gave me the opportunity to see what I would really be doing if I pursue this career path, interacting with others to solve real-world problems. The work I did may have been challenging, and I may have had to ask my mentor a million times how to do something, and I may have messed up a few things in the process. But at the end of the day, the experience I gained from the process is what makes me a deeper thinker, a more inquisitive asker, and overall, a more curious scientist now.” —2019 SIP intern
