Engineering Opportunities

Colorado Space Grant Consortium

FRCC is an affiliate of the Colorado Space Grant Consortium (COSGC), which is a state-wide organization involving 21 colleges, universities and institutions around Colorado and is funded by NASA. FRCC participates in the DemoSat program, which provides students with frequent, low-cost access to the edge of space. Students are challenged to design, fabricate, launch, recover, and analyze data from balloon payloads on which they design their own experiments ranging from atmospheric characterization to bacteria experiments and technology demonstrations.
