Who runs these workshops?
We're expanding opportunities for Pennsylvanians to learn about and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space programs.
Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium
As one of 52 members of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, the Pennsylvania Space Grant Consortium (PSGC) mission is to expand opportunities for Pennsylvanians to learn about and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space programs by supporting and enhancing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, research, and outreach programs.
The PSGC maintains a diverse array of programs to develop opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in research and discovery. In particular, we strive to provide students with opportunities to be involved with NASA relevant projects including student flight programs. We aim to assist both K-12 and higher education with the development of science, mathematics, and technology programs.

What I like best about the Space Grant Workshop Program, is that gives us "purpose," to rejuvenate our expertise/enthusiasm. Since we are doing it for credit and since it requires we follow a set format, it codifies that pursuit into something much greater than if we simply dove into independent study.
