Student Highlight


Gerardo is a sophmore in aerospace engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU).  He currently serves at the student project manager for the COlorado Undergraduate Retention in Science and Engineering program.  Gerardo transferred to CU from Community College of Aurora, where he engaged with the CCA Space Grant program in an engineering design course in which he and his team designed, built, and launched a high altitude balloon payload. At CU Space Grant he also works on the PropSat cubesat mission. Gerardo plans to complete graduate study and hopes to work for NASA or in industry, specifically on innovative propulsion methods.




Welcome to the Colorado Space Grant Consortium

Here you will find all you would like to know about our organization and our student programs. If you do not find what you are looking for, please contact me directly.

The COSGC is funded by NASA and is a state-wide organization involving 17 colleges, universities and institutions around Colorado. Our organization provides Colorado students access to space through innovative courses, real-world hands-on telescope and satellite programs, and interactive outreach programs.

Our students interact with engineers and scientists from NASA and aerospace companies to develop, test, and fly new space technologies and to support our outreach and teaching programs.

We welcome all students and are always looking for way to enhance their experience through new interactions and collaborations with NASA, government agencies, and companies.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our site and I look forward to your involvement in our program.
