Space Traffic Jam Beta
The intent of this project is to show that early STEM exposure, along with the implementation of unconventional aerospace concepts, might naturally increase diversity in the field. Our activity, Space (Traffic) Jam!, provides an introduction to the complexities of Space Traffic Management by creating an analogy comparing a space map of satellites to a roadmap of cars.
The goal is to encourage students to draw correlations to fields they previously viewed as unrelated to aerospace.

Pilot Study: Impact of Coaching in Leadership Development for Engineering Undergraduate Students
The paper is about the impact of one-on-one coaching in leadership development for engineering students. It’s a pilot study, and it showed us that it is possible to implement one-on-one coaching and that students find it beneficial. It also found that further research is needed to better understand the impact of such coaching.
