About the Workshop


About the National Astronomy Consortium

The NAC's primary goal is to increase the number of students, who otherwise would have been overlooked by the traditional academic pipeline, into STEM and STEM careers by placing them in a cooperative, diverse team over the summer and beyond. We accomplish this goal by providing:

  • research and or internship opportunities for short and/or long term experiences at partner sites.
    • research experiences in astronomy, physics, chemistry or engineering
    • internships to explore science policy, E/PO activities, scientific writing, computing, project management
  • a framework to engage students in research / STEM-related activity throughout their school year
  • long term / career mentoring (peer and faculty/staff mentoring)
