BCC-CUNY selected for NASA-EONS Grant Award - 2018-2020
The grant will fund major initiatives in geospatial technology and its application to STEM disciplines. It will engage students from schools and colleges, researchers, educators and the industry to create a task force that will expose, enthuse, train, mentor students and educators in the New York City region in applied geospatial technology. All-year-round inquiry-based workshops will be developed and delivered at the state-of-the-art BCC Geospatial Center of the CUNY CREST Institute (BGCCCI) and STEM labs at Medgar Evers college. Summer workforce research internships will engage participants in focused cutting-edge research in applied geomatics. The ultimate objective is to create workforce skills that will drive America's economy forward and sustain its global dominance in technology.
