Rachel Sargent – Connecting Content Fall intern

The California Academy of Sciences brought in Rachel Sargent as the Fall intern for the IMLS Connecting Content grant.  Rachel graduated from the University of Vermont with a BA in Biology and is now enrolled in the John F. Kennedy University Museum Studies Program.  Her work experience includes managing the neurobiology and microscopy lab at Harvard University and volunteering at the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology where she participated in a project digitizing butterfly specimens.  In addition to the Connecting Content grant, Rachel is also volunteering in the California Academy of Sciences Ornithology and Mammalogy Department.

Rachel has spent much of the Fall assisting in the development of the technical specifications for the Connecting Content specimen photography.  She has also scanned the Rollo Beck field notebook.  She is now hard at work photographing the Connecting Content finch specimens.  You can see Rachel in action in the California Academy of Sciences Project Lab, located on the West side of the museum public floor.
