NASA Field Trip
The largest event hosted by the Center annually is the Open House in December. This event, organized by MACES faculty and students, provides a platform to demonstrate all the facets of the center – research, education and outreach. We in general invite NASA Officers, scientists and astronauts if available to join the event. They will educate students about the NASA's mission and encourage them to enroll in STEM courses and participate in the STEM workforce. Students and faculty members from all California State University (CSU)campuses and local high school teachers are invited. Last year, students from Fresno, Stanislaus, Sonoma, CSU Chico and San Jose State attended this event. We will also utilize the open house to inform attendees about our summer undergraduate research program and answer any questions that they may have.
