WHEN and WHERE the Program Will Take Place
Participation begins with your decision to compete and ends with our receipt of your team's Outreach Plan deliverables, which are due by July 30, 1999.
Team Selection (Fall 1998 Semester)
A Peer Review Committee, consisting of representatives of NASA, industry and universities, will select from among the proposals received six (6) student teams to participate in the 1999 NASA Means Business program. The Committee will assess each proposal according the following criteria:
We strongly encourage individuals from underrepresented groups, including those attending institutions serving underrepresented groups, to submit proposals.
Data and Mentoring (Spring 1999 Semester)
Once the six (6) student teams have been selected, each will be partnered with key scientists, engineers, and administrators in NASA and the aerospace industry, who will act as information sources or mentors. They will also provide access to other professional NASA and industry personnel who will share with each team useful information and experiences.
NASA Customer Engagement Conference (May 1999)
HEDS UP and NASA will jointly convene a NASA Customer Engagement Conference, at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston from May 24-26, 1999. In addition to providing a forum for the presentation of each student team's Business Plan segment, this conference will be structured to allow useful dialogue among NASA, industry and university community professionals; provide status reports on the progress of exploration missions and programs; and introduce updates on new systems, technologies and approaches to the human exploration and development of space.
Students may also expect to initiate relationships at the conference that could ultimately lead to professional employment opportunities.
