Welcome to the Oregon NASA Space Grant 2020 Student Symposium. Oregon NASA Space Grant (OSGC) is committed to providing unique educational experiences and hands-on research opportunities to students enrolled in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines and STEM education programs at our member institutions. OSGC programs contribute to the development of a diverse and qualified STEM national workforce in disciplines needed to support and achieve NASA’s strategic goals and align with the agency’s top research priorities.


OSGC-funded students who participated in NASA or university summer internships; were part of an OSGC Undergraduate Team Experience project; or were engaged with faculty research, present their research projects and share their experiences at the annual Student Symposium. We invite you to view this year’s student posters and join the students as they present their projects.


We are pleased to welcome this year’s keynote speaker, Frederick (Rick) Colwell, Ph.D., professor in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences and Department of Microbiology at Oregon State University. Dr. Colwell will kick off the event with his talk titled Microbiology of the Planet, One Gig at a Time.
