NASA Shadow Day

November 20th, 2017
8am to 5pm
Shadowing: 9:30 to 12:30
UC San Diego

The Native American Student Alliance at UC San Diego’s first project this year is a shadow day for Native American high school students in San Diego. Transportation will be provided from the American Indian Health Center in Downtown San Diego. Students will also receive breakfast, lunch, and some snacks throughout the day, as well as an excuse letter from my supervisor (it does take place on a school day).

Undergraduates interested in volunteering to be shadowed will also receive free lunch and my undying love. All you have to do is take 1-2 students to your lecture/discussion and bring them back for lunch. There will be a mandatory training session (time and date TBA) and you will have to do presidium training (more info when you sign up).
