Hawaii Island Internship Program - Summer '07 , Big Island, Hawaii
The Center for Adaptive Optics (CfAO) Hawaii Island Observatory Internship Program offers communty college students and undergraduates that are Hawaii residents an opportunity to get involved in research at the Mauna Kea Observatories. Each student is matched with a research advisor and is integrated as a member of the advisor’s research group with daily guidance by a research supervisor.

This program is a collaboration between the Center for Adaptive Optics and Mauna Kea Observatories. It is an intensive eight-week introduction to research method and tools with an emphasis on adaptive optics science. The program provides opportunities at various sites over the summer, with additional activities that will provide support and opportunities during the academic year. The interns will start with a 5-day short-course in general optical principles and adaptive optics. Upon completions of the internship program, participants will be better prepared to pursue their educational and research career goals.
