The Cebrowski institute serves as the hub for several Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs. These
target under-represented groups and provide support and opportunities that lead to inspiring and growing the national
Community College Catalyst (3C)
Working with the award winning Hartnell NASA-CIPA and NSF sponsored programs at Hartnell Community College, the Cebrowski Institute coordinates a robust summer student intern program, matching undergraduate students who excel in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines with NPS research faculty. NPS provides graduate research assistant opportunities for students, providing a “kick-start” when the students transfer to a 4-year university.
Blending what we have learned on two previous NSF projects (Rebooting Computing and Field Guide to Computing) with our Community College Catalyst, we have created an exciting new program called "Cyber Adventurers, which introduces middle school and high school students to the "Magic and Beauty of Computing."
PhDs + Polka Dots
The Cebrowski Institute developed and facilitates a 3-part series of summer gatherings designed to bring together civilian undergraduates, working cross the NPS campus as summer hires, who are interested in learning more about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. With opportunities to meet female PhDs doing exciting work at NPS, the goal of the meetings is to expose the next generation of researchers to resources, expertise and possible mentors.
Miltary Cyber Professionals Association
An NPS thesis project led to the creation of this joint, interdisciplinary approach to DoD wide collaboration, with one of it's key focuses being STEM education.
