Program Type: Higher Education, Pre-College, Informal Education, Research Program
State: North Carolina
Reporting period covers Fall 2017, Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 semesters: Each Affiliate campus director at our 13 Affiliate institutions receives funds (called base funds) to manage the Space Grant program on their respective campuses. Funds are used to support student research, higher education projects, and precollege/informal education programs in their local communities. At the […]

Improving Plant Growth in Martian Soil by Particle Sizing and Soil Monitoring: This project investigated the growth characteristics of rye in different particle sizes of Martian simulant soil. Previous work showed that rye grew poorly in Martian simulant soil from Orbitec Company. We suspected that soil particle size might be playing a role in water […]

A study of the reported variability of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey SDSS standard star BD plus 17 4708. This star, one of the three fundamental standards of the SDSS standard star network was reported as a possible variable star, Bohlin and Landolt, 2015, Astronomical J., 149, 122, ArXiv 1502.01754v1, based on observations made in […]
Program Type: Research Program
State: Arizona
An important Arizona Space Grant component at Arizona State University is multi-disciplinary, student-led and directed, team research/engineering and design projects. Through these, participants learn to work as team members, are held to industry standards for deliverables, must complete tasks on schedule, communicate about technical work to professionals, peers, and the public, and work side-by-side with […]
Program Type: Higher Education, Research Program
State: Arizona
The Arizona Space Grant Consortium (AZSGC) works to provide opportunities for Arizona undergraduate students to learn the potential excitement of work in NASA-related fields through hands-on activities that complement and enhance classroom learning. One way we do this is through ASCEND! (Aerospace Scholarships to Challenge and Educate New Discoverers), a statewide multi-faceted balloon sat program […]
Program Type: Research Program
State: Minnesota
The Augsburg Research program includes mentored undergraduate student research in two topical areas: Space Physics, Environmental Mathematics, Materials Science, and Atmospheric Chemistry. These research areas are primarily carried out in our physics, chemistry, and mathematics departments, respectively. Typically, the support allows for one student in each area to conduct either a ten week full time […]
Program Type: Research Program
State: South Dakota
Given expansions in the state of South Dakotas graduate programs that include a new graduate program in physics, there remains a need for new graduate students with a strong research background. Augustana University STEM Pipeline and Trustees Scholars Programs help fill this need by providing exceptional undergraduates with an opportunity to perform research that prepares […]
Program Type: Research Program
State: Nebraska
Impact of Empathy on NASA Mission Performance: This project is aligned with the NASA Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. The focus of this project is to conduct a series of research studies examining the role of NASA crew member and mission control empathy during oral communications and the impact on NASA mission performance success. […]
Program Type: Research Program
State: Minnesota
Faculty and students participate together in research in three main areas: imaging of transient fluid events in 2- and 3-dimensions, super-resolution imaging of plasmonic hotspots, and data processing for massive particle searches in high-energy physics. These projects, while basic research, are also related to activities for student laboratories in our Fluid Dynamics, Materials and Devices, […]
Program Type: Research Program
State: Minnesota
Environmental/planetary science/geology research at Bemidji State University. Research funding dominantly supports graduate and undergraduate student research, primarily in sciences related to hydrology, hydrogeology, water quality, and identifying and proposing solutions to regional environmental problems. If adequate funds are available, faculty research is also supported. In addition, travel to professional conferences in by faculty and students […]
