Each summer for more than 50 years, Michigan Tech Summer Youth Programs (SYP) has welcomed to campus more than 1,000 youth from grades 6-11from across the country and around the world. We need your help to ensure they experience the Michigan Tech community we all know and love.
SYP students come for week-long, hands-on, experiential learning in one (or more) of our 50+ week-long explorations in STEM, humanities and law. During their time at SYP, students gain confidence in their ability to be successful in college as they experience residential life, responsibility in arriving to class on time and exploring the beauty of the Keweenaw Peninsula.
We’re looking for passionate individuals who enjoy working with youth and want to inspire the next generation of doers and makers. Each year we hire 50+ undergraduate and graduate students for a variety of rewarding experiences that build leadership, communication and critical interpersonal skills.

Interested in working on a project for NASA? Have you taken CEE 3810? Interested in contributing to journal and conference papers about the research? If so, Dr. Paul van Susante is looking to hire on an hourly basis (10 hr/week at $15/hr) an undergraduate student (US Person or Citizen) with geotechnical knowledge for immediate start in January to help with his NASA cone penetrometer project. They need to perform a great many 1m deep cone penetrometer tests under controlled conditions (inside the freezer container) where we have to reset the testbed with lunar simulant, compact to the desired relative density and create icy layers with specified wt% ice (particles or cemented). The lunar simulant then needs to be emptied from the testbed and put in the drying container to dry out before the next test. The tests themselves include a regular ASTM DCP, a modified instrumented ASTM DCP, a handheld electronic cone penetrometer, a percussive cone penetrometer with 5 different cone geometries. The work is on campus in the Benedict Lab. Safety training and respirator training will be required. You will work with the other students as part of the Planetary Surface Technology Development Lab (www.huskyworks.space) and work may be available/extend through summer. If you are interested, please contact Dr. van Susante to express your interest and send your resume highlighting your geotechnical knowledge at E-mail: email@example.com .
