Applications Open For the NASA Academies – Deadline January 18, 2011

APPLY NOW FOR THE NASA ACADEMIES
http://www.AcademyApp.com
Deadline for Completed Applications: January 18, 2011

The Academies are intensive educational programs emphasizing group activities, teamwork, research, and creativity. The curriculum balances direct contact with science and engineering R & D with an awareness of the managerial, political, financial, social and human issues faced by aerospace professionals. Included are seminars, informal discussions, evening lectures, supervised research, visits to other NASA Centers and facilities, group project/s, tours, posters/presentations, and assessment. Additionally, most weekends are filled with group activities, team building and off-site trips. One free weekend is scheduled.

The Academy is not a 9-5 summer research internship program. It is a rigorous, immersive experience that will challenge you. The academy is a space-themed program of high learning about NASA, its projects and collaborations with aerospace industry and academia, with very little down time, but a busy, exciting summer that you will not forget. The Academies have separate focus areas of leadership (NASA Academy), robotics, aeronautics, space and planetary science, and propulsion.

At AcademyApp.com, you may apply to the following programs:
• NASA Academy at Ames Research Center (Mountain View, CA)
• NASA Academy at Glenn Research Center (Cleveland, OH)
• NASA Academy at Marshall Space Flight Center (Huntsville, AL)
• NASA Aeronautics Academy at Glenn Research Center (Cleveland, OH)
