NC Space Grant announced its 2021 class of summer interns, which includes UNC Charlotte Mechanical Engineering master’s student Letice Bussiere. This summer will be Bussiere’s second internship with NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. She has also been selected as a recipient of the NC Space Grant to fund the internship.
NC Space Grant collaborates with NASA centers, industry partners, research organizations and other national Space Grant partners to provide hands-on experiential and research experiences to higher-education students through meaningful internships. This year’s internships with NASA centers, although offered remotely again this summer instead of face to face, still provide students with opportunities to engage in cutting-edge research under the direction of a NASA mentor.
