NIP is a center unique college internship program (formerly known as LERCIP) conducted at the NASA Glenn Research Center. The program provides a 10-week paid summer internship for students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and non-STEM majors that lend support to the NASA mission, and a 16-week fall and spring STEM-only internship opportunity. Students spend their tenure learning and working at the NASA Glenn Research Center facilities under the guidance of a mentor while engaging in authentic NASA-related, mission-based R&D and career-related activities. The educational component allows students to attend and participate in a variety of planned activities such as Conference Day, Career Showcase and a Student Poster Session. The program provides hands-on experiences that challenge, inspire, and promote practical application, complementing and expanding upon students’ theoretical education.

The Project Nature Lecture Series, affiliated with the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Graduate Student Association, is dedicated to informing of the many ways in which one could get involved in making a significant and meaningful contribution towards fighting climate change. More information about the lecture series is here and the January 2020 newsletter is attached. Past issues of the newsletter can be found here. You can also learn about ways to get involved with Project Nature here: https://u.osu.edu/maemega/project-nature-get-involved/
This month’s newsletter talks about IPCC – the United Nations body dedicated to studying climate change – and the key takeaways from its 2018 special report that was in the news.
The first Project Nature Lecture Series event of the new year will be held on Thursday, January 30 at 12:15 PM in E100, Scott Lab, OSU. Join the curator of Orton Geological Museum at OSU, Mr. Dale Gnidovec, to learn about the geological history of Ohio. We will be webcasting the talk through OSU Zoom, so that if you can’t make it to the talk, you can still join us via the internet! You do not need an OSU account or a Zoom account to join the webinar. Follow the link below to join
My name is Nathan Zimovan and I am the president of Scientific Thinkers, a student org and volunteer program here at OSU. Through Scientific Thinkers, OSU students have the opportunity to:
- positively impact the Columbus community by teaching elementary students interactive STEM lessons and experiments
- mentor underrepresented minority students in STEM who have limited STEM resources within their school
- gain experience in teaching a unique age group
- increase their leadership skills, and
- expand their ability to communicate knowledge of STEM topics to a variety of age groups.
If students are interested they should attend a mandatory orientation on January 23 3-4pm in the Physics Research Building (PRB) which they can sign up for using this link: https://forms.gle/ZEumgPVFH5kUMLLu5
The program is highly rewarding and is a great way to complete community service and outreach requirements. More information can be found on our website: https://u.osu.edu/cemscientificthinkers/.
I would greatly appreciate you sharing this opportunity with your scholars!

As the Central Ohio Regional You Be The Chemist Challenge Organizer, I invite OSU grad students to consider volunteering in support of the You Be The Chemist Challenge a collaborative, multilevel academic competition that celebrates the science of chemistry and elevates STEM careers! The Central Ohio Regional Challenge will be held on Saturday, February 15th, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the Columbus Metropolitan library. Univar Solutions, a global chemical distributor, partners nationally with the Chemical Educational Foundation (CEF) by supporting You Be The Chemist programs. We are committed to advancing STEM education by connecting with students in the early years to instill a love of science through hands-on activities and competition.
I’m excited to share fifteen teams from across Ohio will participate in our Challenge. Each team consists of 4 students from grades 5 through 8. The competition is a quiz bowl format comprised of four rounds, 10 short answer questions each round. Students work across their team to answer timed questions. Judges score the team’s answer card and the result is recorded by a scorekeeper.
Last year, more than 60,000 students from 40 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico participated in the You Be the Chemist Challenge! The program continues to grow every year, and I hope you will support its success by volunteering as a judge for the Central Ohio Regional Challenge. This is a great opportunity for the future generation to interact with OSU grad students.
For judging , the Chemical Educational Foundation (CEF) provides a scoring key that has a detailed explanation of how to score each question so that anyone can score the questions. The scoring key is available well in advance of the competition so that the Judges have plenty of time to review it before the competition.
Fulfilling this role requires volunteers to:
- Before the Challenge
- Read the 2019-2020 You Be The Chemist Challenge Official Rules
- Read the 2019-2020 Regional Challenge Scoring Key
- Copies of both (rules, scoring key) will be printed for reference during the challenge
- During the Challenge
- Ensure the competition complies with all the rules
- Score team answers using the scoring key during each round, track total team scores throughout the competition, and calculate total score at the end of the competition
- The Speaking Judge’s Responsibilities Include
- Announcing the participants advancing to the national level
- Announcing appeal results (if applicable)
Last year, more than 60,000 students from 40 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico participated in the You Be the Chemist Challenge! The program continues to grow every year, and I hope you will support the success of the program through volunteering for the Central Ohio Regional Challenge.
Please feel free to forward this opportunity to others who you think may be interested in volunteering!
Questions? Please let me know! I am happy to share more about how you can be involved.
