Valeria Cano Camacho spent her summer on one of Hawaii’s islands, Big Island, where she was a summer field intern for Ulu Mau Puani. All summer long, she helped with six different projects. Some of those projects included: collecting data, extension and outreach, and lab work.
“It was different every day. Some days I would be hiking up a volcano to find berries and other days I would be working with elementary students and learning about the Kohala Field System,” Valeria said about her favorite part of working on Big Island.
Evan's experience in the Department of Agronomy gave him the knowledge and problem solving skills to successfully transition an entire team to a new precision agriculture, data management software.
"ISU gave me the knowledge and skills to understand the calculations and rewrite, tweak them so they would work in our new programs format," said Evan. "Through my many experiences at ISU, I was very comfortable presenting, training and educating my agronomy colleagues in their application of the new programs within our business and in support of our customers."
