NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars Program

Have you ever wished you could work at NASA or even become an astronaut?  Would you like to be part of a team that designs, builds, launches, and controls the next generation of space exploration vehicles?  Does the idea of working to put people on Mars get you excited?  Would you just like to find out more about NASA’s programs and opportunities?
On Thursday, April 2, Mike Welham, current mathematics instructor at Vol State and 20-year NASA veteran, will share his experiences and introduce you to the NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars program.  He will present videos, pictures, and “war stories” from his 20-years at many of NASA centers in the U.S. and answer your questions.  He will also tell about the scholarship opportunities funded by NASA and a special program that’s open only to community college students who have completed or will soon complete 9+ hours in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) disciplines.  The event will take place from 12:00 to 2:00 in the Rochelle Center in the Thigpen Library.
