Student Building a Robot That Will Work on Mars

Bharg 沙阿和Meenu Jain

Bharg 沙阿 ’17 was a precocious 6-year-old in elementary school in India when he heard his principal over the loudspeaker with a very special opportunity. He announced a program that would send two dozen of the young students to a NASA research center in the United States.

Bharg was heartbroken when he learned he couldn’t go.

但他的两个朋友做到了, and they returned with stories and photos that fueled the second grader’s desire to learn as much as he could about science and visit NASA.

Twelve years later, that dream will come true this fall.

Mr. 沙阿, a 2017 MCC graduate in Engineering Sciences and Mathematics, was part of the NASA Community College Scholars program, 由俄克拉荷马大学进行, in which he took on online course for six weeks. He scored a 96 percent in the class and was then offered the opportunity to go to the NASA Research Center in Langley, VA为期四天的研讨会. The visit will reinforce what the students learned in the class, plus discuss scholarship and internship opportunities. 他还将建造一个机器人.

“When I get to NASA, I have to program and build a robot that will work on Mars,” he said. “这是梦想成真.”

He is now at Rutgers and hopes to go into automobile aerodynamics.

在世纪挑战集团任职期间,陈德铭曾表示. 沙阿 was vice president of the STEM club and a peer tutor in the Learning Science Center and in the 退伍军人 Center.
“He is a very sincere student,” said Professor Meenu Jain. “He was in two of my classes and is a terrific student. I am very proud of him and predict he will be very successful.”
