Announcing the CICS-MD Summer Initiative 2013

By: Scott Rudlosky

The Cooperative Institute for Climate and Satellites-Maryland (CICS-MD) at ESSIC has launched a summer program to provide training and outreach opportunities for both graduate (4) and undergraduate (8) students.

The CICS-MD Summer Initiative (CSI) pairs students with mentors to conduct original scientific research and help train future NOAA scientists. The 2013 CSI provides a framework that includes software tutorials, informal student presentations, weather/climate discussions, and interactions with other institutions/organizations to maximize the student experience.

The CSI not only focuses on training this year’s students, but also will help recruit future CICS-MD/UMD students.
