A Nanostructured Energy Harvesting and Storage System for Space and Terrestrial Applications The University of Tulsa/NASA Human Exploration & Operations Mission Directorate/Glenn Research Center

In collaboration with the Oklahoma Jurisdiction, the NASA EPSCoR research team organized an annual research symposium with the purpose of career development, development of personal and professional skills, improvement of technical communication skills, and outreach to students from underrepresented groups. The “Oklahoma NASA Energy Symposium� highlighted the research accomplishments of Oklahoma-area student researchers in the topics of energy generation, storage, and management for NASArelevant terrestrial and orbital missions. The symposium not only served as a mechanism for students to present their research, but it also served as an outreach mechanism to encourage these students to attend graduate school and participate in the proposed NASA projects as future graduate students or affiliated undergraduate researchers. Graduate school recruitment was emphasized, by all the universities involved. This symposium is a new endeavor for the Jurisdiction in collaboration with the research team. This new evolution of STEM education and research by Oklahoma NASA EPSCoR has been well received by the engineering and science communities. Now in its second year, over twenty five students from across the state have participated including several minority students.
