The National Center for Autonomous Technologies (NCAT), along with Northland Community & Technical College, the National Science Foundation (NSF), Minnesota State Colleges & Universities (MinnState), and the Mall of America (MOA) are hosting a week-long STEAM event the second week of August 2022. 

This event coincides with back-to-school traffic and the Mall of America's 30th Birthday Celebration. Plans include celebrity appearances, concerts, and numerous opportunities for K-12 youth and families to actively participate in highly experiential hands-on learning experiences, including robotics events, student competitions, and many more. 

In this session, undergraduate and graduate students will learn about current missions at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, upcoming research objectives for solar system exploration, and how they can contribute. Internships and programs will be covered at JPL, how and when to apply, and what reviewers are looking for in a strong application.
