"The culture at JPL is amazing, everybody is very nice and ready to guide you if you have trouble. Besides that, every project at JPL is very interesting and being part of a mission makes it a lot better. I made so many good friends and memories that I will never forget. I learned how to network at JPL, and that being part of one group doesn't mean that you have to stay there at all times, sometimes learning from other groups helps you understand the scope of your project."

"My JPL experience as an intern this summer has been nothing short of amazing! This summer, JPL became a place where my passions for engineering, space, and robotics collided and transformed into my everyday work. The highlight of my summer was that I even got a chance to share the experience of exploring JPL with my family."

"Knowing that the spectral camera mounts I designed are currently in use in field tests gives me great pride. My mentor has given me responsibility and ownership over my projects, which has helped me grow as an engineer. Also, to constantly be surrounded by dedicated and passionate scientists and engineers at JPL has been amazing."

"This experience was truly a lifelong dream come true! Thanks to my mentor, Dr Kleinboehl, for giving me this opportunity to explore a different planet from the 'center of the universe'. JPL is definitely a place where you learn something new everyday and since day one I have learned so much."

"Always be kind to inexperienced passionate people. JPL taught me that if you are hard worker and passionate, you will go far. Everybody was willing to take time out of their day to talk about their last projects, inspire, advise you and give you tips to succeed."
