Target Audience:

Community college students interested in STEM


The NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars, or NCAS, program is an educational experience for community college students interested in exploring careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The program provides selected students with a four-day, in-person learning experience at a NASA center.

As part of the program, students will participate in a five-week online workshop, consisting of discussions, live video chats with NASA experts and various mission design challenges. Students will then apply for the opportunity to spend four days at a NASA center collaborating with team members to compete in a STEM engineering design challenge, getting an inside look at NASA missions and science, networking with scientists and engineers, and developing a presentation to showcase their work to a panel of judges.
