FIELD TRIPS

2019 SUMMER FIELD TRIPS

Please be advised that individuals may sign up for a field trip ONLY if you are registered for PVNet Summer Internship or Summer Program (any class listed on our catalog here - there may be some exceptions).

Secure Your Seat ASAP

Each trip will have limited seats, so be sure to claim yours as soon as possible.  Note that PVNet Interns will have first priority, so if you're interested in visiting NASA or JPL and are not an intern, you will NOT be guaranteed a seat.

All Field Trips

Attendees must be of high school age. Younger students may be considered on a case by case basis.

PVNet will try to coordinate carpooling for each trip - will need parent volunteers.

Additional fees may apply. 

Class-Specific Trips

Certain trips, such as the overnight trip to USC's lab on Catalina island, are limited to the students registered in the respective class.

PVNET AND NASA 


PVNet has the distinguished honor of recommending interns to the NASA Edwards Air Force Base summer research project. PVNet recommends 1st-year college interns based on their performance in our Internship program.

Continuing our annual trip to NASA, PVNet will get a very special behind the scenes tour at Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center on Edwards Air Force Base.  Guides will be speaking to our students about current NASA projects, while showing us previous work and research.  Students will get a chance to ask questions and learn more about what it takes to work at NASA.

If you would like to go on the field trip, you MUST let PVNet know ASAP, as everyone must be processed and cleared by NASA.  All attendees must be US citizens.
