A STEM Student’s Journey to NASA
The Clipper – October 31, 2018
19-year-old Clarie Calicdan, a STEM student from EvCC, beams with pride as she gives a recount of her internship at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Hancock, Mississippi. The center is the largest rocket engine test complex in the country.
Calicdan spent her summer working at its ASTRO CAMP®, which is a series of week-long summer camps that are part of the NASA Out-of-School Time Learning and Human Exploration Organization initiatives, which seek to provide opportunities for learners to engage in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational activities.
