Laura Bolt’s plans for a summer abroad in Austria came to a screeching halt because of the coronavirus.

“Of course I'm super disappointed that I wasn't able to go,” she said.

Bolt is majoring in physics at the University of San Diego. She suddenly had an empty summer schedule.

“I figured I needed to do something productive with myself, and so I started applying like crazy,” she said.

Bolt landed an internship with MakeSAFE Tools, a San Diego manufacturer of devices that allow emergency stops on construction equipment in the home and in the field.
