A Bridge to the Stars!

Seeking motivated students (from all fields) to help mentor a group of urban high-school students as part of the A Bridge to the Stars Pipeline Program during Spring 2022 in Astronomy 150. These paid internships ($50/week for ~5 hours/week) offer a unique opportunity to gain interactive education experience and training from an award-winning professor in an exciting course that fulfills general-education science requirements (for non-science majors). No astronomy experience necessary, and all majors are invited to apply. Application deadline: November –, 2022, at 5pm

Details: ASTR 150 meets T/Th 4-5:15 pm and mentors attend the entire course with the scholars. Outside of the regular class time, the hired mentors will conduct a weekly mentoring session every Wednesday from 4:30-5:30 pm from January 17 through May 12, 2023. Orientation and mentoring training will occur the week before the spring semester begins (the week of January 9th-more details to come).

This internship will last 18 weeks total.
