SELECTED INTERNS

Each intern selected will receive a virtual SEES "box" with distance learning activities that must be completed prior to the residential internship. These activities must be completed by July 1 or students will not be eligible to attend the on-site internship. The residential internship is for two weeks. Interns must be on-site at The University of Texas Center for Space Research, West Pickle Research Center, Austin, Texas, from July 14-28, 2018. In addition to the daytime activities, there will be evening sessions and field investigations. Teachers have been selected as chaperones for the SEES program and will be with interns during the time they are on campus.

Interns will not be allowed to use their personally owned vehicles during this time. Any intern who is local to the Austin area may email with a request to commute although they must still participate in all planned events. Upon completion you will receive NASA certification and a letter of recommendation.
