Duperval, who is from Rosedale, N.Y., is looking forward to gaining hands-on experience in the engineering field this summer.


“NASA is one of the most prestigious research institutions on the planet,” Duperval said. “I am looking forward to applying my problem-solving skills that I’ve acquired in my engineering classes to real-world aerospace problems.”


Duperval hopes his LARSS experience will help him narrow down what kind of graduate degree to pursue and help him in choosing a career path.


He also expects to “learn and develop a great deal of skills and become knowledgeable of various research labs and topics within the NASA community.”


The LARSS Program provides paid internship opportunities year round for rising undergraduate juniors and seniors as well as graduate students during spring, summer, or fall sessions. Participants gain exciting hands-on research experience while working side-by-side with NASA’s finest scientists and engineers who serve as mentors at NASA Langley.
