Mission & Strategic Plan
North Carolina Space Grant utilizes NASA-related STEM opportunities to engage and inspire North Carolinians and to build a diverse future STEM workforce. In order to achieve those aims, we create and support unique opportunities for students, faculty, educators and the public to participate in space-related research, education and outreach programs.
NC Space Grant strives to inspire and engage North Carolinians to explore the universe and our own planet by capitalizing on NASA’s unique contributions in exploration and discovery. Our program aims to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) research, education and public understanding that support current and future success at NASA and across North Carolina.
