NASA highlights Capitol's SOI in A New Dimension to Learning
August 31, 2010
In August, NASA came to the Laurel campus to tour the SOI and profile the students working there. New Dimensions to Learning: Educating the Next Generation of Engineers features students Ross Asato, John Blake, and Joe Flemke, as well as President Michael Wood and Associate Professor Angela Walters.
The SOI was established in 2002 with a grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). This partnership between Goddard Space Flight Center and the college combine the infrastructure necessary to manage satellite operations with an educational program. It prepares students for careers in all aspects of space mission operations with hands-on experience to gain the skills and knowledge to support NASA space operations programs.
