High School Program
TSGC/CSR Summer Internship Program
Texas Space Grant Consortium and The University of Texas at Austin Center for Space Research Summer Intern Program is a competitive program for high school students. The program provides selected students with exposure to space research and development and how to interpret NASA satellite data while providing the student with an idea of what scientists and engineers do in their chosen area of work.
Scientists and Engineers at UT/CSR are conducting NASA supported research on remote sensing and space geodetic techniques to help understand Earth deformation, natural hazards and climate science. This summer TSGC/UT/CSR will support a summer intern program from July 8- August 1, 2013. The summer intern program will allow students to view and investigate NASA remote sensing data including CSR analysis of ice sheet elevation changes, earth's gravity field, and other observations by satellite and airborne laser altimetry while being mentored by project scientists.
We are offering summer internships to motivated high school students who have an interest in pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics careers. The students will work beside CSR scientists testing web-based tools and analyzing data which will provide content knowledge and hands-on experiences which provide guidelines for fulfilling the field investigation requirement for high school graduation.
