The MESA Program & UCSD/NASA Space Program invite you to join a team of Southwestern students to learn from on this project-based experience!
Projects will be centered around the use of low-cost programmable microcomputers (Arduino based) to collect, store, and transmit in-field sensor and GPS locator data, as well as drive a controller. Previous projects included onboard experiments involving near-space ballooning, launch vehicles, small satellites, remote controlled aircraft, and ground robotics. Non-aerospace projects included wearable sensor vests or helmets for sports and health monitoring, or earth science experiments.
The UCSD/NASA Space Program will provide participants with:
- $650 scholarship award for each participant
- Arduino kits and supply stipends for team projects
- Fieldtrip to a California NASA Research Center
- NASA Webinars from CA Space Grant Affiliates
- Faculty mentoring
Are you interested in applying your creative ideas?
Contact: MESA Program Director, Mourad Mjahed, at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested in joining.
*Only students who are U.S. Citizens will be able to receive these scholarship awards. Students who are non-U.S. Citizens may still participate in the projects.
