NASA Langley Research Center
Research Internship Opportunities, Summer 2012 Session
The NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) is an “ecosystem” for innovation, problem solving, and creativity. Since 1917, LaRC engineers and scientists have undertaken award-winning research and development efforts to pioneer (1) the future of flight (including entry, descent, and landing) in all atmospheres; (2) the characterization of all atmospheres; (3) space exploration systems and technology; and (4) materials concepts, analysis, and integration. LaRC researchers are also engaged in innovative challenges including atomistic materials; Earth systems science; affordable, safe, and sustainable space exploration; and “green aviation”.
The Langley Aerospace Research Student Scholars (LARSS) Program is a paid, unique, and highly competitive research internship program for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). For 25 years, the LARSS program has helped to preserve U.S. leadership in engineering and science by providing exceptional students the opportunity to work with Langley researchers on some of the Nation’s most important, difficult, and challenging problems that require multi-disciplinary and collaborative solutions.
