South Dakota TOC

As a jurisdiction, South Dakota has relatively limited research infrastructure in traditional disciplines that support NASA and the aerospace industry. There is, however, no shortage of talent and creativity in the state’s colleges and universities that can be harnessed to help solve the grand challenges of space exploration and space science. NASA EPSCoR creates opportunities that connect talented faculty and students across the South Dakota with scientists and engineers at NASA’s research centers with the goal of building broad-based, sustainable research collaborations among state institutions, NASA, and the nation’s aerospace industry. These emerging research partnerships benefit NASA by expanding the resources available to address mission priorities and, at the same time, advance state research and development infrastructure in critical STEM fields such as materials engineering, nanotechnology, energy generation and storage, and satellite monitoring of global change.
