STEM Enhancement in Earth Science


2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12, Adult learners

NASA, Texas Space Grant Consortium, and The University of Texas at Austin Center for Space Research (UT/CSR) STEM Enhancement in Earth Science (SEES) Summer Intern Program is a nationally competitive STEM program for high school students. The program provides selected students with exposure to Earth and Space research. Interns learn how to interpret NASA satellite data while working with scientists and engineers in their chosen area of work.

The summer internships are provided to motivated high school students who have an interest in pursuing Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics careers. The interns work beside UT/CSR scientists analyzing and visualizing data. Scientists and Engineers at UT/CSR are conducting NASA supported research on astronomy, remote sensing, and space geodetic techniques to help understand Earth systems, natural hazards and climate science.  This content knowledge, coupled with hands-on experiences, allows the intern to gain experience in authentic NASA research through field investigation and data analysis.

Interns are selected on the basis of their academic records, written application that includes response to essay questions, introduction video, letter of recommendation and interest in STEM.  Sample project choices include:  Aerospace Engineering, Astronomy, Explore the Moon, Emergency Preparedness, Flood Response, Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment, ICE, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite, and Mars Exploration. 

Former interns share the value of their experience in this motivational video.
