Bentley's Nasa Means Business

In January of 2005, students at Bentley College and Boston University embarked on a journey, which ultimately led them to the steps of NASA Kennedy Space Center, presenting in front of NASA officials, in a prestigious competition. The mission of these hard working undergraduate students is working rigorously to ensure that the people throughout the country, and eventually all throughout the world are well informed about the workings of NASA.

This group of dedicated students are part of the NASA Means Business Competition, which is an annual peer-reviewed competition consisting of several finalist teams who present to NASA on ways they can improve their image, and regenerate this country’s fascination with NASA again. These teams meet in May of each year and showcase their findings to NASA officials, who ultimately decide on a winner. The winners are chosen to present their work before NASA Headquarters and in front of Congress, attesting to why NASA’s work is of great value to the American public. It is a difficult challenge to present a short and effective message, and all participants do all that they can to create the most dynamic strategies, as for their own plan wooing the American public.

Bentley College and Boston University students have decided to combine their unique skills and deliver a concise product which they hope will reinvigorate America’s interest in the aeronautics program. Last year, the executive officials at NASA realized the efforts of this group of students and invited them to present their findings in their annual NASA Means Business Competition. There they showcased their efforts in ensuring that the space program’s interest amongst the American people would be increased with their efforts. They ultimately came in second place and are continuing their Endeavour in reaching their message to the masses.
