Geo-Anthro students earn summer internships with NASA

Geography-Anthropology students Paul Bourget and Tony Cole have earned summer internships with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Working out of the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, respectively, Paul and Tony will assist NASA scientists in research that uses satellite imaging and geographic information systems techniques to examine critical global climate and landscape change issues.

The internship will be Paul’s second at the Goddard Center, and both students follow on the heels of other Geography-Anthropology students who have completed internships at NASA centers.

The Geography-Anthropology program offers a specialized curriculum in geospatial technologies and routinely engages undergraduate students on projects funded by NASA and the National Science Foundation.
