Final Day of NSLC at Rice 2018!

July 01, 2018 | 2:56 pm

Today marks the end of NSLC’s time at Rice University for this summer. We are sad to see another wonderful group of students go, but are excited to see where their new technical skills and leadership knowledge take them in life. Have a great summer, everyone!

Students will soon be able to view their session photos on myNSLC.

On Friday, both NSLC programs at Rice University spent the day visiting Space Center Houston. Engineering students were given a presentation by guest speaker Steve Riley, Deputy Chief of NASA’s Space Vehicle Mockup Facility. Medicine & Health Care heard from Dr. Richard Anthony Scheuring, a NASA flight surgeon. Many were able to tour the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility and the historic Gemini and Apollo era Mission Control Center.

Soldering, Programming, and Water Filtration

June 26, 2018 | 12:13 am

Throughout Monday afternoon and evening, Engineering students rotated to different stations where they learned about 3 major engineering activities. Each session began with a short presentation on a different type of engineering – its academic requirements, its career possibilities, and the future of its industries. Team advisers provided demonstrations on soldering, challenged students to create their own water filters with basic materials, and quizzed students on their knowledge of computer languages.
