NASA LogoNASA's Spaceflight and Life Sciences Training Program

Location:  Kennedy Space Center, Florida.

The Spaceflight and Life Sciences Training Program (SLSTP) is an  investment in tomorrow.  It is an intensive, academically challenging, six-week summer program at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  It is a  program for undergraduate college students interested in learning how to successfully design and conduct biological research and operations in space, and how to assess the environmental impacts of a launch site.  The program emphasizes the unique features of experiments conducted in the space flight environment and the challenges associated with planning and conducting long duration space flight missions and experiments.  Students spend the majority of each day actively involved in planning and executing laboratory and engineering projects that span a range of Life Sciences activities of current interest to NASA.

The curriculum includes lectures from leading research scientists, managers, engineers and astronauts from NASA centers, universities and industry.  Students receive tours of the KSC Shuttle and Payload facilities to obtain first-hand knowledge of the processes involved in conducting life science experiments in space.

This is an all-expenses-paid internship.  More information can be found at their website:  SLSTPhome
