Meet Gilkey- The Newest Addition to the JIRP Family

Prospective admitted students- are you on the fence about JIRP this summer? We will throw in a puppy to sweeten the deal. Meet Gilkey- the newest addition to the JIRP family (our program coordinator just got a new glacier loving pup). He will be present during Juneau week and possibly make guest appearances on radio calls. Juneauites- feel free to stop by the Juneau office to give him some love.

My JIRP experience strengthened in me a love of exploration that ultimately led to my participation in the space program, including the Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity. JIRP was fundamental to my growth as a scientist and as a person.
