The JPL Summer Internship Program offers 10-week, full-time, summer internship opportunities at JPL to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.
As part of their internships, students are partnered with JPL scientists or engineers, who serve as the students’ mentors. Students complete designated projects outlined by their mentors, gaining educational experience in their fields of study while also contributing to NASA and JPL missions and science. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a number of enrichment activities, including tours, lectures and career advisement, arranged by the JPL Education Office.
– Undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering or mathematics disciplines
– Minimum 3.0 GPA
– Open to U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents (LPRs).
– Students must be available full time (40 hours per week) for at least 10-weeks in the summer.
Wheeling Jesuit University will be hosting the fourth annual NASA-SPACE Day on April 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. NASA-SPACE Day is a collaborative effort between the NASA West Virginia Space Grant Consortium, Bethany College, West Liberty University, Wheeling-Jesuit University, the SMART-Center, NASA IV&V Facility, and the state-wide student organization Student Partnership for the Advancement of Cosmic Exploration (SPACE).
This event is ideal for schools, the general public, and community centers, and has hands-on interactive activity stations with experiments, games, and make-and-take projects designed to engage the interest of all ages. Below are a few of the events that will occur are outlined below:
– The Challenger Learning Center on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University will provide a unique learning experience designed to inspire the next generation of explorers. Some participants will have a chance to be transformed into astronauts, scientists, engineers, and researchers all working together to explore the “Red Planet.”
– Various presentations by the SMART-Center about space and life
– NASA IV&V Facility will be providing bottle rocket launches and robotic experience to participants.
– Two talks by NASA related scientists will be given about Mars and Cassini
– High school and college student level research poster displays
The event is free and open to the public and will feature a variety of hands-on activities designed to learn about science and space exploration. For more information, please contact Kati Baker @ 304.293.3936 or firstname.lastname@example.org
