Drones in Africa, algal biofuel and the necessity of thorns. These topics and more constituted the varied research projects of 88 Princeton University undergraduates who presented the results of their summer-long internships during the Princeton Environmental Institute's 2017 Summer of Learning Symposium Oct. 6 at the Campus Club.

Students participating in PEI's internship program collaborated with Princeton faculty, researchers from other institutions, government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations and community groups. Their projects focused on global environmental challenges in the areas of policy and resilience, biodiversity and conservation, alternative energy, climate and oceans, and water, soil and human health. Student interns based in different areas of the United States and in 12 countries tackled these issues from scientific, technical, policy and human dimensions through research, outreach, policy analysis and other practical experiences.
