Ben Is a student at Northwestern University , studying Biology , and is expecting to graduate in 2017 .
Summer Intern Experience (2016)
I started out at Northwestern University as a spry young freshman studying Materials Science and Engineering. By the end of my Sophomore year, I realized that Engineering was not for me, and promptly switched into Biology, where I ended up declaring a Plant Biology concentration during my Junior year. I am about to enter my fourth and final year at Northwestern University and my second year as an official Biologist, although I like to think I've been a Biologist all along. Aside from academics, I am the producer and president of Boomshaka, a student group that explores rhythm through drumming on trash cans and dancing to the beat.
There are a wide number of potential projects for a student to work under at the Chicago Botanic Garden. We try our best to give them a broad experience of the Science and the Scientific process while they are at the Gardens.
