The Big Blue Crew
The scholarship you help to support could open so many doors. Even one to the cosmos. In 2017, mechanical engineering students Kimberly Wright, Nathanial Andrews, Zachary Campbell, William Gottwald, Foster Grubbs and Justin Hernandez were selected to be part of the Micro-g NExT program, held at the NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston. Their proposal earned them an opportunity to develop a plan to collect a multi-ton boulder from the surface of an orbiting asteroid. Wright still speaks with Awe about the chance to work in the NASA lab with engineering professionals. Other students are helping shape the future of scientific discovery and launching their own careers across the globe.
