COEd students attend NASA program for STEM education

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

 

“The main goal is to give educators an insight of what NASA is doing by using different components,” says attendee Catherinne Alfaro, a EC-Grade 6 Bilingual Generalist student, “such as student centered classroom activities that utilize NASA assets and resources."

NASA’s Minority University Research and Education Programs (MUREP) enhance the capabilities of colleges and universities supporting underserved populations to contribute to the research needs of science and technology enterprises. The MUREP staff at NASA are responsible for developing agencywide policies, procedures and guidelines that enhance the involvement of all minority serving education institutions in the mission of the agency.

Projects supported by MUREP ensure access to NASA careers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, disciplines and are designed to address the national challenges of attracting and retaining underrepresented, underserved, and minority students and faculty in STEM courses of study. The MUREP suite of projects provides opportunities for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels with NASA-related research and mission-specific technology development. MUREP also provides opportunities for these institutions to collaborate with teacher preparation programs that improve the quality and diversity of STEM teachers.
