by Dong-Chan Kim last modified Sep 19, 2013

NRAO Community Day at the GSFC


Date: September 27-28, 2013
Time: 12PM - 6:40PM on September 27, 8:30AM - 1:30PM on September 28
Location: Room 138, Louis Stokes Health Sciences Library, Howard University, Washington D.C.

A primary goal of this collaboration is to increase the number of men and women undergraduates of color that will consider STEM careers . We want to provide students with research / internship experiences (summer + short and long term) at NRAO and discuss cooperative opportunities in engineering, computing, science policy, EPO and other STEM-related fields. At this workshop we will also discuss research opportunities for the students at their home HBCUs, resources and challenges at the HBCUs and future graduate education and other opportunities with partner universities such as University of Virginia, Maryland, Wisconsin and Ohio State.
