NASA in NYC Seeks Students
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is formulating a NYC
Research Initiative (NYCRI) Summer 2003. High school and college
students and faculty will work along side graduate students
and NASA scientists (at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space
Studies (GISS) in NYC) or the Principal Investigators of NASA
funded research projects (at colleges/universities within a
50-mile radius of GISS). GISS research scholars will be involved
in current and global climate change research. Participants
assigned to a college/university will conduct earth science,
space science, biological/physical or aerospace technology
Faculty participants will develop learning units, based on
their summer research, which will be implemented during the
academic year. Faculty development, content seminars and informal
education seminars will be provided.
The following websites contain the requirements and applications
for NASA funded student and teacher programs. Those who wish
to participate in the NYCRI should request to be assigned to
GSFC or GISS.
