Abstract:
Greg Newbloom, a student from Milwaukie, Ore., is spending this summer at NASA Goddard Space
Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. as a participant in the prestigious NASA Student Internship Program (SIP). SIP, a research intensive program that allows students to explore various career opportunities within NASA, commissions students to spend their workday in a Goddard or Wallops Flight Facility laboratory or Headquarters office conducting research for various projects and missions. By the end of the summer, each student should complete close to 400 hours of research on a project related to NASA's goals and deliver a poster presentation where they will share the results
of their research with NASA personnel and fellow interns.

Oregon Student to Participate in Unique NASA Internship at Goddard Space Flight Center

GREENBELT, MD | Posted on May 29th, 2007

"In the internship program, I hope to be able to further my knowledge
with respect to nanotechnology, the subject of my project, and better learn
to immerse myself in the research environment," said Newbloom. "I hope I am
able to continue to work on my interpersonal skills while learning to
balance an independent attitude."

Each SIP student is assigned a NASA scientist or engineer as a mentor
and assists the mentor with his or her current project. The SIP
participants help their mentors conduct research and use data for the
projects and in turn, the mentors guide the students and help them learn as
much as possible from their experience at NASA Goddard. For example, in the
summer of 2005, several SIP students built miniature engines for unmanned
underwater vehicles. The ten- week program runs from June 5 through Aug.
11.

"This is a wonderful experience for a student," said Dr. Vigdor
Teplitz, chief of Higher Education for NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
"NASA's space program is just about the greatest show on Earth if you are a
technical person and having these young eager people with fresh
points-of-view and questions is good for NASA. It makes a productive summer
for all."

This year, SIP brings together 46 students from around the country
including Puerto Rico who are pursuing degrees in science, engineering,
mathematics, computer science or another field of interest to the aerospace
industry.

With this program, NASA continues the agency's tradition of investing
in the nation's education programs. It is directly tied the agency's major
educational goal of strengthening NASA's and the nation's future workforce.
Through this and the agency's other college and university programs, NASA
will identify and develop the critical skills and capabilities needed to
achieve the Vision for Space Exploration.

Goddard Space Flight Center's Public Affairs Office for additional
