Internship – NASA DEVELOP National Program Participant Summer 2024

The DEVELOP experience is focused on both conducting and delivering an applied Earth science feasibility project to an end-user. DEVELOP participants work on a team to research the use of NASA Earth observations for environmental community concerns. Participants will conduct a literature review on the scope, methodologies, and types of NASA remote-sensing data applicable to their project. They will utilize Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote-sensing data to conduct application projects. Teams will communicate with end-user organizations that can benefit from the methodologies, results, and enhanced decision-making tools created by the team. A substantial amount of time is spent on the creation of scientific and technical deliverables, including a research poster, scientific presentation, technical report, as emphasis is placed on building capacity to communicate project results to a variety of audiences. Participants also conduct personal development activities, such as personality typing, team-building exercises, and networking with their team, advisors, and partner organizations. Additionally, DEVELOP participants work through situational issues and use problem-solving skills to achieve desired project outcomes, with assistance from the DEVELOP Fellows, Science Advisor(s), and mentors.
