Student selected for aerospace program
July 11, 2012
A-B Tech Community College student Michael Rose has been accepted to participate as a National Community College Aerospace Scholar (NCAS) through the NASA program. Rose, who is earning his Associate of Science degree, was one of 180 students admitted into the program.
The program is an interactive, online learning experience featuring engineering career possibilities. It is highlighted by an all-expenses paid on-site experience at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL in October where selected students will study mathematics, science, engineering or computer science by interacting with engineers at NASA. NCAS is open to community college students throughout United States.
Rose will compete for a spot through an application process and his scores from his online lessons over the summer. During that time, he will learn what it takes to plan a mission to Mars.
