Promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields by recruiting and training the next generation of aerospace stakeholders.    

Student Satellite Program

High-Altitude Balloon Launch Internship
A student-driven program that launches and retrieves payloads from a high-altitude balloon that will ascend up to 100,000 feet - altitudes used by NASA as Mars analogues and considered to be the "edge of space."  The launch team is trained to carry out the launch, tracking and retrieval of the balloon and payload.

High-Altitude Balloon Payload Internship
A student-driven program that launches and retrieves payloads from a high-altitude balloon that will ascend up to 100,000 feet - altitudes used by NASA as Mars analogues and considered to be the "edge of space." The design team designs and builds science experiments to fly in this environment, assists in the launch of the satellite, tracks and chases the balloon as it traverses, retrieves it upon landing, and analyzes the resulting data.

Instrument Development Program - Engineering
Instrument Development Program - Science
Opportunity to serve on a student science team or engineering team for a multispectral atmospheric observing instrument to be launched on a high-altitude balloon.

Collegiate Rocket Competition
The annual Student Rocket Competition provides an opportunity and funding for student engineering teams to design and fly a rocket that excels at a specific goal. Different goals are set for each annual competition.
