Student Highlight


Carroll is a sophomore at Pikes Peek Community College. Carroll's first project at PPCC Space Grant was a balloon payload that explored how Melanin could act as a shield against ionizing radiation.  She joined a 2nd project team an is helping with the science on another biological balloon payload experiment. After graduating from PPCC, Carroll hopes to go to the University of Colorado to study biomedial engineering, after which she hopes to go into research, and perhaps work for the CDC. 

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.
