Karthik Uppaluri, an eighth-grader at the Mesa Academy for Advanced Studies, has been selected to participate in a two-year internship with The JASON Project, a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Geographic Society.

One of nine students and four teachers chosen through an international competition, Karthik will take part in field expeditions led by top scientists and researchers from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the U.S. Department of Energy, the Smithsonian Institution and National Geographic.

Their work will be featured in JASON’s curriculum on space, climate, and forces and motion, scheduled for release in 2011.
