Carthage’s space sciences program is a nationally recognized undergraduate program that provides students with hands-on opportunities in technology development and atmospheric sciences through partnerships with NASA and academic researchers around the world.

The Microgravity Team study their experiment during their zero-g flight. Opportunities in the space sciences at Carthage include:

  • On-campus paid research fellowships
  • Research internships through the NASA Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium, headquartered at Carthage
  • Workshops in space hardware development
  • Opportunities to support commercial development with commercial aerospace partners

Participating students regularly travel to and work with researchers at NASA Kennedy Space Center, Johnson Space Center, and Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.
