Alaska Space Grant Program

UAF is home to the Alaska Space Grant Program, whose mission is to “promote Earth and Space Science and technology and other NASA relevant teaching, research, and public service throughout Alaska, with special emphasis on culturally responsive programs to engage native, minority, and non-traditional communities.”

Neal Brown, former director of the Alaska Space Grant Program and former director of the Poker Flat Research Range is currently working with students at my school in Eagle, Alaska to make and launch rockets (and learn how to use the HAM radio)!
