WASHINGTON, Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- NASA has inducted 105 top-performing interns, representing 29 states and 67 universities, into its 2014 Student Ambassadors Virtual Community.
The NASA Student Ambassadors Virtual Community (NSAVC) is an online network designed to foster greater interaction and mentorship among outstanding interns of NASA higher education projects, thereby increasing student retention through the NASA educational pipeline and into the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.
This is the sixth group of student ambassadors to receive the honor since 2009.
"I am delighted to welcome these bright students to the NASA education family as Cohort VI student ambassadors," said Roosevelt Johnson, NASA's deputy associate administrator for education. "They are in a unique position to inspire their fellow students and the public to pursue STEM and help NASA cultivate the next generation of scientists, engineers and explorers."
NASA managers and mentors nominated the new inductees from among the hundreds of current interns and fellows across the agency based upon the participant's internship performance and involvement in other NASA-related activities. The NSAVC provides a network for the interns, who are located across the U.S., and is designed to elevate the experiences, visibility, and contribution of these students; provide a suite of tools to help them serve as NASA Student Ambassadors; and offer the latest NASA news, blogs, announcements and other information.
Members of Cohort VI will have opportunities to interact with NASA, share information, make professional connections, collaborate with peers, represent NASA in a variety of venues, and help inspire and engage future interns. The Student Ambassador experience is designed to feed the pipeline of talented STEM candidates who will be the scientists, engineers and explorers of tomorrow.
