ATS hosts North Carolina A&T State University undergrads
Six undergraduate students from North Carolina A&T State University visited the department May 20-25, as part of the department’s NSF-GEOPATHS program and a collaboration with Prof. Solomon Bililign from the North Carolina school. Prof. Scott Denning and Melissa Burt are the CSU co-PIs for the NSF-GEOPATHS program. The goals of their visit were to:
- Actively engage with CSU faculty and students who work in complementary research areas;
- Expose NCA&T students to the larger atmospheric science community;
- Prepare NCA&T students for an REU experience outside of their home institution;
- Inform NCA&T students about graduate school opportunities at Colorado State University.
A fully immersive experience in atmospheric science was planned for the students, including tours of the department, opportunities to learn about ATS research, professional development workshops, and three field trips to research facilities – the National Center for Atmospheric Research, CSU Powerhouse and the National Atmospheric Deposition Network (NADP) field site in Rocky Mountain National Park.
