The Scientific Computing and Visualization Team is seeking a highly motivated individual to assist with the outreach elements of the Scientific Computing and Visualization Team at NASA Glenn Research Center. The team does exciting work in scientific computing, data science and visualization. There are tremendous opportunities to leverage content from these work areas to share with the public and raise public awareness of the work the team is doing and the facilities available. The selected student would work with the team on creating web content, including writing and imagery for the team’s website, YouTube channel and Twitter account, among others.
