I'm finding that I am not being challenged or getting the most out of my internship. How can I change this?

If you feel that you're not being challenged, ask your supervisor if you can take on some extra work. If you're taking on more work that's similar to what you've been doing, they shouldn't have any objections. If, however, you want to take on more responsibility or more difficult work, ask your supervisor if you can have a "trial period" where you take on some of this extra responsibility to see if you're capable of handling it and doing a good job. They'll have nothing to lose, as if they don't think you're ready you can keep doing what you've been doing. If you do well, you'll both end up better off: you'll get more out of your internship, and they'll be able to delegate even more to you.
