Education
CASPER offers exceptional opportunities for graduate, undergraduate, technical and high school students. In all of these, CASPER's research/education paradigm remains uppermost with research project team meetings often including high school students through postdoctoral fellows/research faculty.

Graduate students within CASPER are supported by the department, outside funding, research contracts or some combination. In addition, NASA/Texas Space Grant Consortium Fellowships are available for both graduate and undergraduate students pursuing a degree at Baylor University in any of the research areas pursued within the Center. CASPER Internships during the fall, spring and summer semesters as well as a limited number of high school scholar fellowships are also available.

CASPER Summers, one of the Center's ongoing outreach initiatives, offers undergraduates, high school students and K-12 teachers from around the country the opportunity to join a CASPER research team to become involved in basic research, engineering and design conducted in a University research environment. As an added benefit, CASPER RET Fellows within the program actively develop curriculum modules for the public school system allowing infusion of the CASPER paradigm into the K-12 classroom.

Information concerning any of the above should be directed to Truell Hyde. Information concerning the possibility of either faculty or student openings on the TSTC technical support team should be directed to Mike Cook, Director of Lab Operations, CASPER.
