The South Dakota Space Grant Consortium has been awarded $500,000 by NASA.
The grant will be used by the consortium, located at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, to increase engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs at the Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown. The two entities will also partner with South Dakota State University and NASA Johnson Space Center to execute a project called "A Sustainable Food Chain: Growing the Right Stuff!"
The Office of Education at NASA awarded 35 grants to community colleges and technical schools throughout the U.S. in an effort to increase NASA-related STEM engagement.
