Workforce Development

Workforce Development

Strengthening the STEM workforce pipeline is vital to the nation’s prosperity and security. NIA partners with universities, community colleges, secondary schools, business and industry, and government agencies, to design and carry out workforce development initiatives.

LARSS: For 25 years, the Langley Aerospace Research Student Scholars Program offered research-based mentored internships to students from all academic backgrounds at NASA Langley Research Center. In 2011 LARSS was rated among the top ten internships in the nation by Vault Career Intelligence.

NASA Pre-Service Teacher Institute: NASA’s Pre-Service Teacher Institute (PSTI) engages, empowers, and builds confidence in pre-service and novice teachers so that they may design and implement integrative standards-based STEM curriculum in their new or future classrooms.
