Online Sessions Show How To Get Involved In NASA
NASA will provide college students from across the country with
the opportunity to participate in virtual interactive educational
sessions focusing on NASA technical challenges and competitions.
The agency's new Minority Innovation Challenges Institute, or MICI,
will kick-off a series of year-round sessions with a virtual
conference at 1500 EDT, Monday, May 24.
The sessions will teach students how to apply and participate in
various competitions, such as the agency's Centennial Challenges
Program, the NASA University Student Launch Initiative and the
Great Moonbuggy Race. The online program is free.
The MICI is designed to inspire minority undergraduate students
to pursue advanced degrees and careers in science, technology,
engineering and math, or STEM, disciplines critical to NASA's
"The Minority Innovation Challenges Institute will be a great
asset to NASA, as we strive to build the pipeline of future
scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians," said Carl
Person, NASA's minority university research and education programs
manager. "It will help us educate and inspire more underrepresented
and underserved students, not only to participate in NASA
challenges and competitions, but also to pursue advanced STEM
degrees and NASA-related careers."
MICI is managed for NASA by Florida Agricultural and Mechanical
University in Tallahassee, FL, through the agency's Minority
