CLOSING REMARKS

During the second five years of its operation, TSGC has impacted over one million people with fifty-eight projects that span the education continuum from kindergarten through faculty development. Overall, we have been successful in implementing a balanced program across the state. We have also been extremely successful in leveraging its relatively small program funding to a level of $17M, a ratio of almost eight to one. Two of our programs, LiftOff Summer Institute for Middle and Secondary School Teachers and NASA Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program, have been successful in extending their influence beyond the Texas borders by attracting participants from across the nation. We have been fortunate to attract the attention of many talented and dedicated people to participate in our programs. It is this group of people who are responsible for the ongoing success of the Texas Space Grant Consortium.
