Fall 2010 Undergraduate Trainees

CanSat Fellows:

Space Grant Community College campuses are sponsoring engineering programs for students to design, build, and test CanSats. A CanSat is a scientific experiment package, the size of a soda can and commonly launched by weather balloon or small rocket, designed to retrieve photographic, temperature, pressure, and altitude data for near-Earth, low-atmosphere experiments. The CanSat students from the different campuses work together and participate in ARLISS Competitions (A Rocket Launch for International Student Satellites) in Nevada. Community college students have benefited from the mentorship of professors at Honolulu CC and Windward CC, and engineers from HECO and industry affiliates.

Summer 2010 Undergraduate Fellowship Program

Summer Fellowships are awarded to undergraduate students who are registered as full-time students for the Fall semester at one of the University of Hawai'i Community Colleges. Awards are given for space-related research and provide a stipend of $2000 per summer to each recipient.

Four students were funded for the 2010 Summer Fellowship Program at Kaua'i CC. Kelan Adachi, Shaun Koide, Daryl Domingo, and Charls Agcaoili worked under the guidance of Dr. Francis Takahashi.

Summer 2010 Undergraduate Internship Program

Full-time undergraduates enrolled at either a university or community college in Hawai'i or on the mainland are eligible to apply for Summer Internships. The main objective of the program is to promote the use of NASA technology and educational opportunities in Hawai'i, and internships focusing on NASA's science goals are especially encouraged.

Seven interns were funded at three companies on Kaua'i for the 2010 Summer Internship Program. David Herr worked at Manu Kai at the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kaua'i. Tiffany Eliana, Ric Fune, Melissa Peck, and Geoffrey Tran also worked at the PMRF. Crystal Whitehill and Mark Guirao worked at General Dynamics.
