Kira Mok and Laura Jones Intern at SIO Marine Wet Lab and SEACAMP

Kira Mok ('19) and Laura Jones ('20) from Carlsbad had the opportunity this past summer to work alongside graduate research students at Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) Marine Wet Lab and SEACAMP through Pacific Ridge School’s NExT summer internship program. Together with mentor Phil Zerofski, Kira and Laura focused on the care of marine animals during their summer internship, participating in the care for  animals in experimental aquarium tanks. They were able to join Phil and his team of researchers on the SIO collection boat where they encountered a group of dolphins while collecting specimens for research.
