WSGC Student Spotlight: Nicolas Welker

May 05, 2022

Congratulations to this week’s #WSGCStudentSpotlight, Nicolas Welker! Nicolas is the recipient of a STEM Bridge Scholarship.


Nicolas Welker is an undergraduate studying Physics and Computer Science at Carthage College, as well as a collegiate athlete on the Men’s Tennis Team. As a child, he always enjoyed science and the cosmos, but it was a trip to Kennedy Space Center in 2018 that created his eureka moment; that his purpose is to help advance the space exploration industry. As of late, Nicolas was fortunate enough to spend the summer developing spaceflight proven technologies with the Space Science Program at Carthage College. He is currently looking for summer internships in aerospace, robotics, or software industries. 


Congratulations Nicolas, and best of luck to you in your future!
