The 55th birthday of our long-time friend, collaborator and supporter, NASA, was a bit sadder than we would have wished for it to be. For all the space enthusiasts out there who rely on the NASA website as a bookmarked cornerstone to your daily list-of-websites-to-visit, you were probably as disappointed as we were to find the following error message when you tried to access the site:

“Due to the lapse in federal government funding, this website is not available. We sincerely regret this inconvenience.”

NASA, and specifically the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC), is vital to many of the research efforts, technological developments, and educational outreach efforts we have undertaken at the UH Cullen College of Engineering. Cullen College students regularly intern with NASA JSC, and many go on to take full-time positions after graduation. Moreover, NASA provides much-needed funding to many student and faculty research projects at the college.

In honor of NASA’s 55 years of operation, and of all that NASA has helped us to accomplish during that time, we highlight some of the research projects, collaborations, outreach efforts and student success stories that could not have been possible without the support and involvement of NASA. Enjoy.

And in the words of Twitter’s “Sarcastic Rover,” we say to you: “You can’t shut down awesome…”

Cullen College in the Community – Partnership with iEducate Teaches Success

Cullen College student and iEducate tutor Bionka Edmundson in action

When Jameel Jordan became a petroleum engineering student at the Cullen College he never dreamed he'd also become a mentor to third graders.

“It never crossed my mind,” said Jordan.

But the opportunity found him when he learned of iEducate, a group that pays you to share your knowledge of STEM courses (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) with students in Houston’s underserved communities.

It seemed a good fit. Turns out it was perfect.
