NASA Competition Award

Each year WSGC supports teams from Academic Affiliates to participate in NASA-sponsored competitions. These opportunities are competitive in nature, involve a NASA center, and require a NASA-managed selection process. A faculty member on a team’s campus will act as an advisor for the NASA Competition. WSGC is pleased to announce and congratulate the following student teams on their participation in a NASA-sponsored competition.
