The Ames Robotics Academy
(RoboAcad) is a summer internship
program at NASA Ames Research Center
(ARC) located at Moffett Field; CA.
RoboAcad is for undergraduate and
graduate students interested in
robotics. With this 10-week program,
NASA seeks to cultivate and sustain
student academic interest in Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)
and to address the gap in the robotics
pipeline at the college level. This is
achieved by enabling hands-on alliances
between NASA, academic institutions, and
industry partners, with whom students
work to achieve high-level technical
deliverables in mechanical engineering,
electrical engineering, and computer
RoboAcad is in its eith year and
has proved successful based on
achievement of objectives and predefined
evaluation criteria, as well as positive
comments received from group leaders,
partner participants, and others
involved in the program.
The 2013 Academy will run from June 10th through August 16, 2013. Those students with
school schedules that conflict with these dates should contact us ahead of time to discuss alternatives.
The 2013 Academy Enrollment is now open.
The deadline to apply for the 2013 Robotics Academy is January 28, 2013.
