Florida Tech is hosting a space technology event to engage students, research faculty, regional institutions and local businesses, and discuss NASA opportunities and America’s plan to land astronauts on the Moon in 2024.
Bridenstine will deliver a keynote address from 1 to 2 p.m. in the Hartley Room, on the second floor of the university’s Denius Student Center, located at 144 Florida Tech Drive in Melbourne.
Technical presentations by NASA personnel from 9:15 am until noon will focus on advanced materials, robotics and autonomy, power and propulsion, and advanced manufacturing.
The afternoon program concentrates on NASA research grant programs and small business opportunities, followed by breakout-discussion groups aligned with the morning’s technical disciplines.
The purpose of the face-to-face event is to:
• Provide guidance about the NASA research proposal process in order to increase competitiveness.
• Connect NASA leadership to leading academic and commercial research and development capabilities.
• Expose attendees to NASA’s strategic technology investments that are paving the way for American leadership in the exploration of the Moon, Mars and beyond.
• Forge new collaborations with investigators involving a range of participants, from undergraduate students to senior research faculty, at regional institutions and commercial entities.
In advance of Space Technology Day, special outreach has been conducted to encourage undergraduate student participation in exploring career and research opportunities.
Additionally, students will be invited to further establish research connections with NASA representatives at an hour-long gathering at the conclusion of the day.
