Abstract

"Wichita State has a storied history of working with NASA to provide research opportunities to its students. David Nevarez-Saenz, an aerospace engineering senior and first-generation student, has been working with WSU’s NASA Jump Start Program (JSP) for the past two years.

David learned about the program while he was freshman and working in WSU’s First Year Research Experience (FYRE) program in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) from Dr. Bhisham Sharma, assistant professor in WSU’s Department of Aerospace Engineering.

The JSP supports select students to work on NASA or NASA-relevant projects. Funding comes from NASA. Most of the opportunities come from WSU’s Aerospace Engineering Department."
