LANL Hosts Successful Winter Wildfire Camp Targeting Native American Students

ISTI was proud to support the successful Winter Wildfire Camp held on December 7-18, 2020. Twelve undergraduate students, the majority of whom were Native American, participated in this two-week event that taught them how to use data analysis and visualization software to develop wildfire simulations. The camp is part of a multi-year initiative led by LANL’s Student Programs Office to increase the number of Native American student interns at the Lab. 

ISTI congratulates camp organizer Cassandra Casperson of the Student Programs Office, camp technical leaders Rod Linn in EES-16 and John Patchett in CCS-3, and all of the mentors who participated in the event for their work to create a rewarding experience for the students who attended.
