The NASA Office of Education, Education Programs Integration Division, NSAVC and SOLAR Launchpad web site is an Agency-wide workforce development strategic communication tool designed to reach students seeking internships, fellowships, and scholarships opportunities at NASA Centers. It will incorporate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities and opportunities of each of NASA’s field centers and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
The intent of this Statement of Work (SOW) is to create a web-based launchpad that integrates “one-stop” access to existing NASA Education Higher Education and workforce development resources, including a NASA-wide virtual community and an integrated application, selection and placement system for student engagement in STEM research, aerospace education and the space exploration workforce pipeline. The SOW also includes the on-going maintenance of the existing NSAVC website.
Students will visit the Launchpad to seek various NASA Education opportunities, including submitting one application for all NASA internship/fellowship opportunities, participating in the NASA student ambassadors’ virtual community, viewing the On-line Student Research Journal and other STEM highlights and features stories. NASA will seek thousands of high performing students from the U. S. accredited institutions.
The contractor shall provide creative web design that targets the STEM student population. The contractor shall collaborate with NASA’s One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) five strategic partners SOLAR System Administrator, OSSI Broker-Facilitator Corps, NASA Education, and NASA Office of Human Capital Management, and NASA Diversity and Equal Opportunity Office for appropriate content and links.
