This past summer, PSL started an internship program with four UW Engineering students, and a student from Madison’s LaFollette High School. This internship program exposed the students to real world engineering, and the variety of projects PSL is working on. They worked on the Anode Plane Assembly for DUNE, a project for Princeton Plasma Physics Lab, as well as an ice drilling test facility that will be here at PSL.
