Year Involved : Summer 2010, Summer 2011
Major : Mathematics
Worked With : NASA Langley Research Center, Elizabeth River Project Learning Barge


I worked at NASA Langley in the Education Department. I worked with the MY NASA DATA website, editing lesson plans and ensuring that students of all ages could participate. I also worked with S'COOL, a program facilitating cloud observation, where students observe the clouds and weather at locations around the world and submit them to NASA for scientific use. These programs provide valuable hands-on experiences for classrooms around the world. In addition to the education component, I researched sun photometry levels and cloud movements throughout the summer.
