NSF Competition: Community College Innovation Challenge

About The Challenge

Are you a community college student who has a novel idea that uses science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM)? The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) present the third annualCommunity College Innovation Challenge (CCIC) that asks student teams to innovate a STEM-based solution to a real-world problem. Teams will submit projects in one of three themes: Maker to Manufacturer, Energy and Environment, and Security Technologies. Form your team with a faculty mentor and community and/or industry partner to enter. An entry consists of a written portion and a 90-second video. Visit the Promotional Toolkit, where you can download posters, postcards and more.  Image description & credit

Paid, Part-Time Arlington Research Job


Are you interested in urban planning, transportation, or public policy? Do you like talking to people? We’re looking for undergrads, grad students, or recent graduates for a paid research project in Arlington, Virginia about people’s travel habits. This fall and spring, we’re surveying different residential, office, and institutional buildings to learn how Arlington residents and workers get around.

Our surveys take place Tuesdays and Thursdays during the morning (7-9:30am) and afternoon (4-7pm) rush hour. Each survey is at a different site in Arlington County. Most sites are within walking distance of a Metro station.

This is a temporary, part-time position that pays $15/hour. You can work as much or as little as you like, but we require that you show up on time and stay for the duration of each survey.

Over the past two years, this project has produced some really interesting findings about local transportation. If you’re interested in taking part, we’d love to hear from you:
