NLSI: Summer Science Project (SwRI/LPI)
SSP is a program in which high-achieving high school students participate in a six week summer experience and work with space scientists to track asteroids. The program is designed to keep these students in the pipeline for careers in the science disciplines. SwRI's NLSI team is collaborating with SSP to a) develop two-day lunar research projects that involve computer modeling and b) to implement these projects with the students during the summer. Funds support involvement of students in the program, with an emphasis on working with SSP to recruit underserved and underrepresented students.
