I think it's fine as-is, and we'll always have time to split things up if the
task descriptions increase in size.

You will want to make explicit that you're willing to take more than one intern

be worked on" tasks are not supposed to be taken on by one single intern, but
rather as independent projects for several interns.

I'm really glad that you're setting expectations properly here :)
