NASA invites students working towards a degree in television/film, journalism, media relations, or web communications to participate in our exciting science storytelling program – before you graduate.
You’ll gain on the job experience as you work with a leading team of science communicators to produce, manage and share sophisticated multimedia and public engagement campaigns on missions such as the Hubble Space Telescope (astronomy), Solar Dynamics Observatory (space weather and the Sun), Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (solar system) and the Earth Observing System (remote sensing / climate change).
We are looking for students interested in helping us explore new ways of engaging our audiences and sharing the most exciting science and technology content in the Universe!
Duties of the position include:

Products are distributed via NASA-TV and online sources to news outlets, educational channels, documentary filmmakers, science centers and the general public. Advanced students may create their own videos or assist other producers.
