Description: 

The Summer Student Program is centered around one-on-one student interaction with a scientist working at the Institute. The diverse range of scientific interests includes the study of our own solar system, interacting binary stars, quasars at the edge of the universe, and our quest for intelligent life elsewhere. The goal is to place students in a true research environment, and students will participate directly in research, including data acquisition, reduction, and interpretation. At the end of the program students will present their summer's work at an informal symposium of their peers and mentors.

In addition, students will have an opportunity to participate in a program that shows the research done by the scientific staff of STScI, the ways in which modern research is supported and conducted, issues related to research careers, and the many and diverse activities that support the operations of HST and preparations for the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope.
