Master’s Student in Environmental Health Sciences

Environmental Health Sciences student Steven Vanderlaske interned for NASA this past summer, at their Armstrong Flight Research Center in California. As a search and rescue pilot and safety officer for the Coast Guard prior to returning to grad school, Steven was a perfect fit for this internship, performing a wide variety of safety assessment projects.

Special thanks to NASA for the on-base footage. 

I see this major and this role as a continuation of serving others. I can protect the workforce now and help them to live long healthy lives.
