Space Grant Consortium
Providing NASA and STEM engagement opportunities for all ND students and educators
Together, we are #NASAinND
Meet Our Outreach Team
Our STEM Ambassadors are college students who promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across North Dakota. They are trained with the proper pedagogy and teaching strategies to lead engaging hands-on STEM activities with your students.
Virtual Classroom Visits are currently available statewide.
NASA initiated the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, also known as Space Grant, in 1989. Space Grant is a national network of colleges and universities that work to expand opportunities for Americans to understand and participate in NASA's aeronautics and space projects. Our goal is to support and enhance STEM education, research, and public outreach efforts. There are 52 consortia in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
The North Dakota Space Grant Consortium (NDSGC) is made up of 18 affiliate higher education institutions. Primarily a higher education program, NDSGC college students are able to travel across the state to conduct STEM outreach for K-12 students through the STEM Ambassador program and lead tours of the Space Studies Department's Human Spaceflight Lab. For more information on NDSGC and our NASA and STEM programing, please visit http://ndspacegrant.und.edu.
