  • Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Summer Internship

The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) is offering summer projects for students interested in working on NASA missions or space-related research opportunities at APL. The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory is engineering the future of space exploration examining Earth’s near-space environment, our Sun, planetary bodies and the outer solar system.

  • NASA Kennedy Space Center Pre-Service Teacher Institute

The NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Pre-Service Teacher Institute (PSTI) is a ten-day residential opportunity for minority junior or senior college students majoring in elementary education or secondary science education. NASA KSC PSTI is
designed to increase pre-service educators’ skills in teaching science using NASA themed educational activities. During
PSTI, pre-service teachers will participate in many hands-on NASA science educational activities and learn how to integrate
the activities into classroom curriculum. Participants will receive a financial support package.

  • 2013 NASA Academy

The Academies are intensive educational programs which emphasize group activities, teamwork, research, leadership and creativity. The curriculum balances direct contact with science and engineering R & D with an awareness of the managerial, political, financial, social and human issues faced by aerospace professionals. Included are seminars, informal discussions, evening lectures, supervised research, visits to other NASA Centers and facilities, group project/s, tours, posters/presentations, and assessment. Additionally, most weekends are filled with group activities, team building and off-site trips. One free weekend is scheduled.

The Academy is not a 9-5 summer research internship program. It is a rigorous, immersive experience that will challenge you and push you outside of your comfort zones. It offers participants an intense learning experience that is either Space- or Aeronautics-based. All academy students will be immersed in a NASA environment where they will experience the agency from both inside and outside perspectives. Additionally, added interaction with NASA collaborators in industry and academia will provide unique, exciting and unforgettable summer experience designed to engage and capture students within the NASA family.
