Heather Meyer is a geology and religious studies major who has worked at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and in Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. Much of her research has been funded by South Carolina Space Grant Consortium and as she says, "is rewriting textbooks." Heather has also designed graduate-level curriculum to help educate K-12 teachers about lunar science and the best ways to explain it to children. She says she wants all teachers to know there is not a "dark side" of the moon, but a "far side."
The SC Space Grant Consortium offers a variety of fellowships for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing science-related disciplines. Each year, undergraduates and graduates have the opportunity to participate in research during the summer and/or throughout the year in ongoing projects sponsored by NASA, including actual internship opportunities at a NASA center.
