Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) - The foundation of Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) is a ten-week summer research internship at the National Center for Atmospheric Research or at laboratories of other SOARS sponsors. SOARS is dedicated to broadening participation in the atmospheric and related sciences. It is an undergraduate to graduate program built around a summer research internship, mentoring by top scientists, and a supportive learning community. http://www.soars.ucar.edu/
Summer Undergraduate Program for Engineering Research (SUPER) - NCAR Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL)
While working at EOL, interns help develop new instrumentation and improve our existing suite of NSF/NCAR lower atmospheric observing facilities. Most internships also offer the opportunity to gain practical experience operating operating facilities in the field by deploying on one of the NSF-funded research projects. Interns are encouraged to develop their own engineering solutions as they work with and are mentored by professional, experienced engineers and technicians. During the internship, interns have access to a large number of resources such as sophisticated testing and calibration instruments, technical documentation, state-of-the art fabrication capabilities.
Technical Internship Program (TIP) - NCAR Earth Observing Laboratory (EOL)
EOL's Technical Internship Program (TIP) provides unique experiences to prepare science support focused students from two-year colleges and vocational/technical institutions for successful careers. TIP interns work on projects with EOL scientific and science support staff to learn skills that will assist them in their career and academic advancement. Areas for internships include: electronics technicians; computer system help desk support; data loading technicians; entry level programming and scripting; and instrument makers. During the internship, TIP participants are paired with mentors and develop knowledge to help them in future science support careers related to geosciences.
