Students from Rice University and other universities across the United States attend the Moscow Summer Intern Program as part of a student initiative of the Baker Institute Space Policy Program.
The Moscow Summer Intern Program draws inspiration from the successes of the international cooperation and innovation that formed the basis of the International Space Station by engaging the next generation of space scientists. These internships encourage engineering and science students from different countries to work together to design, manufacture and operate space science projects, establishing a foundation for future international collaborations. The program is sponsored by the Baker Institute Space Policy Program, led by Baker Botts Senior Fellow in Space Policy George W.S. Abbey.
The 2013 class of summer interns will travel to Russia from July 7-20, 2013. They will visit the Youth Space Center of Bauman Moscow State Technical University to participate in its annual international student workshop, “Space Development: Theory and Practice,” with students from Russia, countries throughout Europe and around the world. The students will also visit mission control in Russia’s space capital and speak to scientists and engineers. Their trip follows an April 2013 11-day visit to the Baker Institute by a group of Russian students and scholars interested in furthering communication and collaboration.
