SWOSU Student Selected as Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholar
Jennifer (JJ) Stout, a Weatherford senior computer science student from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, was selected as one of 125 students nationwide as a Langley Aerospace Research Summer Scholar (LARSS) at the NASA Langley Research Center in Virginia.
This unique project is intended to encourage high-caliber college students to both pursue and earn graduate degrees and to enhance their interest in aerospace research by exposing them to the professional research resources and facilities at NASA.
Two primary elements of LARSS are: (1) a research project completed by each participant under the supervision of a researcher who assumes the role of mentor for the summer and (2) technical lectures by prominent engineers and scientists. Additional elements of the project include tours of LaRC wind tunnels, computational facilities and laboratories.
Stout has been working to set up a media server for all NASA Center personnel to provide access to the multitude of historical photos in the NASA archives. As part of this project, she is creating searching algorithms to make the archive more easily searchable.
