The Learning Center is currently accepting applications for our 2019 Summer Programs.
After nearly two decades of supporting the research and projects of extraordinary undergraduates during our summer season, we have found that the most rewarding experiences have been reported by those who have become involved in the camps and workshops offered to younger students. When they have taken responsibility for an aspect of curriculum like breaking news in astrobiology, an instrument like a radio telescope, an activity like building and launching model rockets, or even guiding morning jogs through the trails on the site, they become a part of the inspiration LCAP sparks in others and feel a sense of ownership over a facility that has shaped lives.
So, this summer we’re launching new positions that combine the best of what has been done in the past. We’ll be looking for candidates who are interested in taking on two roles. Part of the summer will consist of hands-on education, research, and recreational activities with campers and becoming a role model and guide for their exploration of STEM and space science. These councilors will also have the opportunity to plan their own research or project while taking advantage of LCAP facilities, instruments and the support of its staff.
