"My internship at the Advanced Manufacturing Institute was a great way for me to gain experience, hone my writing and communication skills, and work with a diverse group of people. It was a truly amazing opportunity," Jackson said.

"Lea and the team at the Advanced Manufacturing Institute had a clear vision of their goals, provided us with great assets and allowed us the independence to push the design envelope," said Alissa Sheley, jhP account executive on the project.
