Current GSGC Funded Activities 2014-2015

Summer Undergraduate Research (SURE 2014)

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program provides undergraduates within the rural southern United States opportunities to pursue research in engineering topics relevant to NASA, increase awareness and visibility of NASA projects and ultimately stimulate interest and the desire for careers in engineering in fields relevant to NASA’s mission.

Each One Teach One (EOTO 2014)

EOTO pairs elementary school students in Savannah Chatham County with mentors who are undergraduate engineering students from Armstrong State University. The program involves weekly visits in which elementary school students are tutored in deficit areas and simultaneously introduced to engineering concepts via hands on projects. The program typically employs six to eight undergraduate students as mentors.

Future Leaders in Engineering and Technology (FLET 2014)

This program is for high school students interested in engineering careers (particularly NASA related). It allows students to tap into their own ingenuity, creativity and mechanical aptitude through competitive engineering design. All local high schools in Chatham county and surrounding areas are contacted to provide an engineering design team (4-6 students). Each team will develop a concept and prototype eligible for competition promoted by Armstrong State University’s Engineering Program. Selected engineering college students will assist teachers who have volunteered to coach individual teams.
