Summer 2018 Paid Internships for Science Teachers at NASA Langley Research Center

02/11/2018 7:19 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Science Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, VA is seeking in-service and pre-service teachers to come to NASA Langley during summer 2018 and work with our science education team to become GLOBE certified teachers.

As a part of the professional learning experience, teachers will engage in GLOBE protocol data collection and analysis, learn about science connections to NASA, and participate in lectures from a diverse group of GLOBE Partners serving various communities and grade bands. The GLOBE Program (www.globe.gov) encourages an international community of teachers, students, scientists, and public citizens to collect and analyze environmental data. As a result of the experience, teachers will gain a better understanding of how GLOBE can be implemented across a variety of school and community settings. Interns will complete an individual GLOBE protocol focus with oral presentation and summary of work, followed by a culminating activity that involves support of a GLOBE Protocol training to further develop their role as a GLOBE Teacher.

To be considered for the opportunity, participants need to complete the internship application which is posted through NASA’s Intern program: https://intern.nasa.gov/ossi/web/students/login/. Start by creating an account on OSSI by clicking "Register as a Student." All applicants, including in-service educators, will need to register as a "student". These positions are open to in-service and pre-service teachers.
