Oliver Snow ’25 Selected For Prestigious Virtual NASA Internship

Oliver Snow, a member of the Class of 2025, from Clinton, has been selected for the prestigious NASA Student Enhancement in Earth and Space Science (SEES) summer internship sponsored by NASA and The University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Space Research.

As part of the internship, Snow will use data received from NASA’s earth observing satellites to study and research air quality, land forms, mosquito-borne diseases, and astronomy. The nationally competitive program picks students who will increase their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math through earth and space education.

About 2,000 applications were received for only 100 virtual internship positions. Students work remotely with their project scientist to conduct hands-on activities, field investigations, collaborate with NASA scientists and engineers through science presentations, and work on various NASA missions.

The students selected will come together for the NASA SEES Virtual Symposium on July 24-26 to present the research findings to NASA scientists, NASA engineers, the public, and other NASA SEES participants.

SEES is a collaborative effort of NASA and The University of Texas at Austin’s Center for Space Research. Students apply for SEES on their and are selected competitively. The internships are organized around an aerospace or space science theme drawn from NASA’s diverse engineering and scientific research programs. The program combines the strengths of collaborators and seeks to enrich teaching and learning of STEM.
