We are pleased to announce that two of our Community College Partners have received special awards and acknowledgements. The Citrus College Rocket Owls have been accepted into the NASA Student Launch program. This will be their seventh year participating in the program. Also, College of the Desert has received the distinction of being awarded a grant from NASA to develop new STEM courses.
The MUREP Innovations in Space Technology Curriculum (MISTC) awards align with the priorities of the agency’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), which is responsible for developing the crosscutting, pioneering new technologies and capabilities the agency needs for current and future missions.
“These cooperative agreement awards are an excellent example of a collaboration between MUREP and STMD helping NASA continue achieving exploration goals while promoting STEM and engaging minority serving institutions,” said Jim Reuter, acting associate administrator for STMD
