University Teams with NASA

The president of San Jose State University and the director of NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif., last week signed a memorandum pairing the entities in future research and development, technology commercialization and education partnerships.

The agreement states that the research and projects will be conducted at Ames Research Center's NASA Research Park with the goal of having a major economic and social impact in Silicon Valley across the public and private sectors and academia, said university president Robert Caret. "Partnerships between business, government and education are going to be absolutely crucial to our future," he said. "This partnership is an example of where we are headed in the next century."

Some aspects of the collaboration will focus on integrating technology in the classroom, including the development of K-12 science, math, engineering and technology programs; the development of a teacher institute; and graduate, credential and extended education programs.
