George Gorospe Organizes Second TI Intern Showcase Event

George Gorospe is the organizer for the second TI Summer Intern Showcase Event, to be held on August 11. The Intelligent Systems Division is hosting a summer open house to introduce local students entering 6th-12th grades to the work experiences and projects of TI interns. Participating students will tour the TI facilities, learning directly from the interns about the projects and labs where they work. The showcase event will be focused on informing students about what interns do, achieve, and learn when they participate in NASA internship programs, while simultaneously encouraging interest in engineering, internships, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) related programs. This year we are excited to welcome approximately 50 students from the Girl STEM Stars Program.

BACKGROUND: An objective of the event is to encourage and motivate students to pursue their goals in any STEM-related program and give them a head start on planning for internships and their future. The event will allow students to gain a better understanding of what NASA internships have to offer and how current interns became involved. By offering students this experience, we hope to show the importance and advantage of internships toward education and future careers. Participating in the open house will benefit both students and interns. Students will tour labs, see demonstrations, and learn about projects from the interns who have worked on them. Interns will have the opportunity to practice presenting their work to an audience while sharing their passion for engineering and science with the younger generation. Highlighting the importance of mentoring at all ages and levels is an additional goal of this event. Special thanks to Susan Frost, who organized the first TI Summer Intern Showcase, for guidance and advice.
