NASA eClips™ Interns Article Published on Science Matters Website
The NASA eClips Science Communication Summer Internship program provides opportunities for communication, journalism, digital media, and marketing majors to learn effective methods for communicating science using leading-edge approaches to inspire and engage the next-generation STEM workforce. This year’s interns, Kate Jolly, a student at the University of Tennessee, and Taylor Hart, a Saginaw Valley State University student, joined the NASA eClips team. In addition to creating content for the NASA eClips website, assisting with outreach events, and learning how to produce videos, the interns wrote about their internship experience from start to finish. Debbie Mickle, Director of Science Matters, a multi-media educational initiative of VPM, Central Virginia's PBS & NPR stations, asked the eClips interns to write an article. She explained the criteria and constraints for writing content for publication by VPM, walked them through the process of working with an editor, and shared industry standards for web publications.
The NASA eClips™ project, led by the National Institute of Aerospace, is supported by NASA under cooperative agreement award number NNX16AB91A and is part of NASA’s Science Activation Portfolio.
