Director's Welcome

Robert Winglee, Director

Welcome to Washington NASA Space Grant Consortium. As one of the 52 members of the National Space Grant College and Fellowship Program, WSGC is committed to expanding opportunities for those in Washington state to learn about science, technology, engineering and mathematics in all of its various applications and to participate in NASA's aeronautics and space programs.

Whether you are an educator, student, researcher or a space enthusiast, we invite you to explore our website for new learning opportunities.

WSGC maintains a diverse array of programs for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in research and discovery. These include scholarships, fellowships and internships. In particular, we strive to provide students with opportunities to become involved with projects relevant to NASA and its missions, including student flight programs.

We also work statewide to strengthen the pipeline into careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at all educational levels through professional development for K-12 teachers, informal education programs and other public outreach activities.

Now, with funding from NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, we are establishing the Northwest Earth and Space Sciences Pipeline to develop challenging new STEM curriculum and offer exciting hands-on activities for middle and high school students and teachers in Washington, Montana and Oregon.

Northwest Earth and Space Sciences Pipeline (NESSP for short) is a partnerships of educational service districts and school districts, science and technology museums, community colleges and universities. Through our collaborations, we seek to strengthen the pipeline region-wide increasing the number of ready and eager to pursue degrees and eventually careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

WSGC and NESSP are committed to quality education, research, public service and diversity in strengthening the future workforce for NASA and our nation. We hope that you will find our site useful and will contact us when you have questions or comments.
