Students and Interns

ARCADE offers internships providing local high school, college, and graduate students the opportunity to learn about cosmology, engineering and physics while participating in the preparation of an experiment for flight. ARCADE internships are available at our lab in NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center during the summer as well as during the academic year.

ARCADE has an established record of student participation. We have provided hands-on experience with flight hardware to over 14 students at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels. We are always on the lookout for motivated students who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty. If you are interested in working with us, contact the Principal Investigator Al Kogut at Alan.J.Kogut@nasa.gov.

We usually have one or two interns during the academic year, with additional positions available in the summer in years when we aren't launching a payload. Internships are also available through the Goddard Office of Higher Education.
