In the summer of 2009, Jackie Enterline became Virginia Sea Grant’s first Science Communications Intern. During her eight week internship, she trailblazed a form of media with which we had little experience—online video.

Enterline worked to edit and produce a short movie about oyster gardening and shed some light on how one becomes a Master Oyster Gardener, a designation awarded by VIMS, VASG, and the Tidewater Oyster Gardeners Association.

“Internships help you figure out what you want to do when you graduate, and this internship has me strongly considering a minor in multimedia because I realize how vital it is to have thorough computer skills,” said Enterline, who transferred to George Mason University in January of 2010.

Enterline’s video “Master Oyster Gardeners” can be viewed above.
