I think it's very important to have an example of when you collaborated with a group. Many companies have interdisciplinary teams, so good communication skills are necessary. Did the group work well together? Were there problems? How did you solve any problems you encountered?
I found that highlighting your eagerness to learn new skills and solve real problems can be key in an interview. As an intern, you should acknowledge that you won't know everything coming in (this is expected), but are up to the challenge. Highlight problem-solving experiences and take the interviewer through your process of identifying the problem, analyzing the situation, and implementing a solution.
