Students from the U.S. Service Academies work at Los Alamos National Laboratory on projects raging from nanocarbon structures to high explosives research to 3D printing and computer design engineering to highly complex mathematics to solve large equations.
Through the Service Academies Research Associates (SARA), Los Alamos hosts cadets and midshipmen from U.S. military academies so they can get practical experience doing science for national security. As interns, they work at the Lab for four to six weeks. The National Nuclear Security Administration funds the SARA program.
With plenty of hands-on, national security-focused work to be done, the Laboratory is the perfect place for cadets and midshipmen from U.S. military academies to spend part of their summer.
“The purpose of the SARA program is to help create more scientifically aware military decision-makers who will then understand and appreciate the science and engineering capabilities of the Lab,” said Jon Ventura, who leads the Laboratory’s SARA program.
