2nd Space Weather REDI Summer Bootcamp (June 3-13, 2014)

By: Nathaniel Frissell  on: Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 11:41 AM EDT  (3138 Reads)
3-13 July 2014
NASA Goddard, Greenbelt Maryland

Open to: Undergraduate and Graduate Students, Researchers, Professionals
Apply Through: http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov(external link)
Funding: None remaining this year.

I would like to draw your attention to our 2nd Space Weather Summer Training Bootcamp (if you haven’t heard about it already). The training is required for those undergraduates (US citizenship required, rising sophomore or junior preferred) who’d like to be an independent space weather forecaster. After being certified, at least one-year commitment to working part-time with CCMC/SWRC (with compensation, can be done remotely) is expected.

But the training is intended to be multi-purpose, graduate students and researchers (and other professionals) can also benefit from it. Attached please find the tentative training agenda and description.

For the paid summer internship and the follow-on year-long part-time internship opportunity (see the description below), the number is limited (2-3 students per year). While it is too late for this year, we appreciate your recommendations of your student(s) as our potential future interns. You are more than welcome to send your students to participate the 2-week long training if they can find their way to Goddard (at their own cost or sponsored by you/your institution).

More info can be found here (http://ccmc.gsfc.nasa.gov).

Best,

RockOn! 2014 Rocket Science Workshop

By: Nathaniel Frissell  on: Tue., Jan. 14, 2014 02:27 PM EST  (3112 Reads)
Duration: June 14 - 19, 2014
Location: NASA Wallops Island Flight Facility, Virginia

Open to: US Citizens and Permanent Residents
Application Deadline: 2 May 2014
Apply Through: http://spacegrant.colorado.edu/rockon/(external link)

How it works: You register to participate (by April 4, 2014 for a discount) and, when selected, you are invited to stay in scenic Chincoteague, Virginia (next to the Wallops Island Flight Facility) for the duration of the program, assembling and then flying a rocket payload as part of a team of rocketeers. Registration will cover all your on-site expenses but you must make your own hotel arrangements (easy).

During the RockOn workshop, teams will learn through hands-on activities, how to build a sounding rocket payload or RocketSat. Teams of 3 will build their RocketSat from a kit in four days and launch it on sounding rocket to ~73 miles on the sixth day. The hardware in the kit could be used on future RocketSat and possibly CubeSat flights. Wallops will be providing the rocket and launch operations for the workshop. Wallops will also provide a tour and briefings on sounding rocket environments for future flights. We will also present their concept for standardized flight opportunities for future experiments called RockSat-C and RockSat-X. This workshop is not about building rockets. It is about learning to build sounding rocket payloads. This workshop is organized by the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant Consortium. RockOn is funded by you, the participant, and NASA Education. A significant amount of cost sharing from Wallops and the Colorado and Virginia Space Grant programs also make RockOn possible.
