ICRAR runs a paid intern program every summer, selecting eight undergraduate science students to conduct an astronomy-based research project over the summer, closely supervised by at least one researcher. The goal of the program is to attract students to study a PhD at ICRAR, but we discovered after evaluation that both the students and supervisors have different opinions on what the program is for. What do they think and why? And how did we try to change their attitudes the following year?
