Description: The NASA Robotics Internship Program is a 10-week resident summer internship for students specifically interested in robotics. Students who have previously participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition, Botball, or have taken active interest in robotics in demonstrable ways are given priority. Participants are assigned to a team project sponsored by NASA/GSFC, local industry, or academic institution (2-3 students per project). In addition to direct guidance from the Principal Investigator (PI) who sponsored the project, an advanced robotic student is assigned as team lead to guide interns and manage the project on a daily basis. The interns and team leads participate in enriching activities such as a group project, lectures, field trips, and meetings with leaders in the field. Students with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation services.
Duration: 10 Weeks
