NASA’s Minnesota Space Grant Consortium (MnSGC) presented a free, day-long student symposium for students to share about MnSGC projects from the past year. The symposium could be attended either on-line or else in-person in Akerman Hall on the University of Minnesota’s Minneapolis campus.

  • Six sessions of contributed talks by students engaged in NASA-related projects in the past year.
  • Two sessions of in-person exhibits by student teams who have built NASA/aerospace-related hardware.
  • A 12 noon keynote about a cool NASA UAV research project.
  • 2:45 p.m. session about NASA Center internships.
  • 3:50 p.m. career panel, including a current Boeing engineer.

Notes to in-person attendees:

  1. The U of MN – Twin Cities has relaxed mask requirements (slightly), but masks are still required for all indoor instructional events (and all parts of this symposium qualify, including the exhibits). So bring a mask.
  2. There won’t be a “lunch break” but instead a “lunchtime keynote presentation.” If you want to attend that, consider bringing a bag lunch.
