By launching weather balloons 100,000 feet into the atmosphere to capture the Great American Eclipse of 2017, Rihana Mungin has defined the laws of possibility, both for herself and for engineering students at PSU. Her current work has gone beyond the stratosphere and into the microgravity environment of space as a mechanical engineering graduate researcher in the Capillary Fluidics and Dryden Drop Tower Laboratory at Portland State University. Here she applies her passions for innovation, design, and engineering leadership to research ways to better water plants without gravity. Rihana enjoys sharing her journey as a means to inspire future and current engineers and to invite all people into the wonderful world of engineering. The next planned launch that Rihana is prepping is that of her career – she hopes to focus on engineering leadership.

What is ASE? Founded in 1990, the ASE program was designed to address a growing concern over the quantity, quality and diversity of our nation’s future technical and scientific workforce. ASE has grown from a pilot program of 6 student interns to over 150 interns in summer 2018. For over 29 years, the program has provided more than 4,000 students with hands-on, project-based, eight-week internships with practicing professionals in science and engineering disciplines. These students come from a pool of over 500 applicants from Oregon and Southwest Washington. ASE engages high school students in STEM fields by providing them with: • A mentor • A competitive application process • A comprehensive orientation and training program • Real-world internship experience • A tangible career path HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS ASE internships connect motivated high school students with mentors in a pre-professional setting in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. Mentoring organizations include universities, hospitals, research institutions, government agencies, nonprofits, and private companies. Student interns follow a rigorous application, interview and training process, and complete 296 internship hours under mentor supervision. ASE team members and teacher monitors provide support throughout the summer to mentors and students.
