Welcome to Microgravity University! We are excited to offer experiences enabling undergraduate students to conduct science and technology experiments and demonstrations in a simulated microgravity environment.
The Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams program challenges undergraduate students to design build, and test a tool or device that addresses an authentic, current space exploration challenge. The overall experience includes hands-on engineering design, test operations, and educational/public outreach. Test operations are conducted in the simulated microgravity environment of the NASA Johnson Space Center Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL).
The Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program provides a unique academic experience for undergraduate students to successfully propose, design, fabricate, fly and evaluate a reduced gravity experiment of their choice over the course of four-six months. The overall experience includes scientific research, hands-on experimental design, test operations and educational/public outreach activities.
We are currently not accepting proposals for RGEFP..
