Among the many rippling effects of the coronavirus pandemic, some students have found themselves without the internships that they had planned on taking on over the summer.

Luckily for Kyra Sigler, she has been able to continue her summer internship at the Museum of Natural Sciences. She will be working as a marine biology data curation intern for the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. The senior majoring in biological engineering will work remotely in her role.
