NSSL’s Bob Rabin was a volunteer judge at the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) National Conference in Denver, Colo., earlier this month. Rabin judged both oral and poster presentations.
The AISES National Conference is a one-of-a-kind, three day event to connect graduate, undergraduate, and high school junior and senior students, teachers, workforce professionals, corporate and government partners and all members of the “AISES family.” This is the premier event for Native American Science, Engineering & Math (STEM) professionals and students attracting more than 1,600 attendees from across the country.
Rabin also talked to students about opportunities in atmospheric and environmental science at the NOAA booth during the AISES Career Fair. The booth was also staffed by NOAA/ESRL’s Georgia Madrid, Debra Dailey-Fisher and Ann Reiser.
Dr. Roger S. Pulwarty of NOAA Climate Assessments & Services Division was a speaker at the event, and Robbie Hood, Director of NOAA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Program was honored with the 2013 Professional Award of “Executive Excellence.”
