NASA University Research Centers Virtual Poster Session and Symposium

NASA University Research Centers, or URC, is hosting a Virtual Poster Session and Symposium at the end of October and the beginning of November. These events will highlight talented students within the NASA URC program and their recent experiences as interns or co-ops at NASA.

During the session taking place Oct. 24-31, 2012, students will present virtual poster presentations of the research that was conducted during their internship or co-op. During the session, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions, exchange information and ideas, and interact with students and other event participants via the Facebook social network. A panel of NASA subject matter experts will review and score the poster presentations.

Top finalists will give oral presentations of their research during a virtual symposium on Nov. 8, 2012.

Free Education Webinar Series from the Aerospace Education Services Project

The Aerospace Education Services Project is presenting a series of free webinars throughout October 2012. All webinars can be accessed online. Join aerospace education specialists to learn about activities, lesson plans, educator guides and resources to bring NASA into your classroom.

Here an Earth, There an Earth, Everywhere an Earth: The Kepler Telescope Search for Habitable Planets Beyond Our Solar System (Grades 6-12)
Oct. 25, 2012, 5 – 6 p.m. EDT
Aerospace education specialist Steve Culivan will discuss NASA’s Kepler telescope and its search for Earth-like planets orbiting other stars. Participants will learn how to use Johannes Kepler’s Third Law and actual Kepler telescope data to construct graphs to record and interpret data that determines if a planet orbiting a star in another solar system is a possible candidate to support life.

Robotics on a Budget (Grades 5-12)
Oct. 30, 2012, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. EDT
Aerospace education specialist Steve Culivan will explore how to use robotics to enhance your students’ understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. Participants will also learn about NASA STEM robotics missions, curriculum and activities that are available.

For more information about these webinars, and to see a full list of webinars taking place through December 2012, visit http://neon.psu.edu/webinars/.

NASA History Program Office Spring and Summer 2013 Internships

The NASA History Program Office is seeking undergraduate and graduate students for spring and summer 2013 internships. The History Program Office maintains archival materials to answer research questions from NASA personnel, journalists, scholars, students at all levels and others from around the world. The division also edits and publishes several books and monographs each year. It maintains a large number of websites on NASA history.

Students of all majors are welcome to apply. While detailed prior knowledge of the aeronautics and space fields is not necessary, a keen interest and some basic familiarity with these topics are needed. Strong research, writing and editing skills are essential. Experience with computers, especially hypertext markup language, or HTML, formatting, is a plus.

Intern projects are flexible. Typical projects include handling a variety of information requests, editing historical manuscripts, doing research and writing biographical sketches, updating and creating websites, and identifying and captioning photos.

Applications for spring 2013 internships are due Oct. 30, 2012. Summer 2013 internship applications are due Feb. 4, 2013.
