Learning and experiencing new things from start to end in an almost perfect internship program.

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I loved the lectures and all the events the program held as a group. I really loved the work schedule; there were no specific time you HAD to be into work, as long as you got your work done and completed four hundred hours by the end. I was able to work extra some days and less others. I loved seeing real engineers at work and attending bi weekly project meetings.

Downers

I wish there were more program events: tours in particular.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be open minded, approach new faces, and take risks.

Advice to Management

There really isn't anything I can complain about. I had a great experience.

Too much intern bonding

NASA's LARSS program gives an incredible opportunities to students across the nation. The students participating are incredibly lucky to be working with such great and influential teams conducting research that may change the world

I got to work in something unexpected, and get paid to do it! Plus it's NASA and that's killer on your resume.

Downers

I really didn't like how disorganized it felt sometimes. There are many things that we are required to attend but there's little notice sometimes.

Advice to Potential Interns

Go for it. There's no reason to not apply.

Advice to Management

In my department, there are few females.

NASA Langley: Filled with the Opportunities of a Life-Time

4.8 of 5 stars

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I had so many 'acting' mentors and therefore was exposed to so many different types of work. I have enjoyed seeing what types of occupations are available across such a large organization.

Downers

The fact that I had no concrete project ready for me when I first arrived. It made me feel like my presence wasn't necessary. After establishing connections, it is easy enough to find people who want help. Until that point however, it was rather disheartening.

Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared with heightened social skills. It is an essential in all that you do.

Advice to Management

It was an incredible place to work! Perhaps they could benefit in the long run, by setting up a better system of 'check and balance' to make sure people are doing the work required.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Uppers

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of NASA Langley as a whole and the opportunities to get involved in other learning opportunities on center

Downers

I do not like how unorganized the office is that runs the LARSS program. Everything seems to be announced last minute and information does not seem to be proof read before it is sent out causing misinformation and confusing information

Advice to Potential Interns

This internship is an amazing opportunity and my advise would be to accept as many of the learning opportunities as possible (tours, lectures, etc.)

Advice to Management

The management of the LARSS program needs to be more organized

Would You Recommend

Yes

NASA Langley Internship Is Better Than Anticipated

4.8 of 5 stars

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Meeting people, learning how NASA works, learning a new discipline, feeling productive

Downers

More tours of facilities would have been cool.

Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure you get to know people and don't be afraid to jump into something you don't yet understand very well. NASA Langley does a lot of stuff, and it can be hard to see what you'd want, without trying a few new things.

Would You Recommend

Yes

DEVELOP COMPUTER SCIENCE SKILLSETS IN AN ENVIRONMENT THAT FOSTERS EXCELLENCE

5.0 of 5 stars

Hampton, VA | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I really enjoyed being challenged with a task that I had never done before. I also admired the people with whom I worked. They were all very intelligent and outgoing.

Downers

The facility that we worked in was a bit old. However, it was functional, and I did not think that it was unsafe or unhealthy.

Advice to Potential Interns

I recommend making early contact with your mentor to learn what you will be doing. You can then prepare in advance for your area of work.

Would You Recommend

Yes
