Hopefully they will consider grad school a little more seriously because of it.

This is pretty darn awesome – I wish I had these opportunities when I was in high school. Even though I just “knew” I would go into CS, I didn’t learn about research pretty much until I started my Masters. I think I would have been in a much better position in research or for industry with internships like these!
