NCC Student Selected to Visit NASA this Fall

Brandon Beller, an Engineering student at Norwalk Community College, has been selected to travel to NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility this fall to participate in the NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars (NCAS) onsite experience. Brandon has been selected as one of 319 community college students from across the U.S. to be part of the NCAS onsite experience.

The five-week online activity culminates with a four-day on-site event at a NASA Center and offers students the opportunity to interact with NASA engineers as they learn more about careers in science and engineering. While at NASA, students form teams for developing and testing a prototype rover, forming a company infrastructure, managing a budget, and developing communications and outreach. The onsite experience at NASA includes briefings by NASA subject matter experts, information on how to apply for internships and a tour of NASA’s unique facilities.
