TWU joining race to return to the moon

The next time an American sets foot on the moon, Texas Woman's University will play a role in the journey.

NASA has awarded TWU and the University of North Texas a three-year, $900,000 grant as part of a $14 million program with 19 colleges and universities "to participate in critical spaceflight research and prepare a new generation of diverse students for careers in the nation's science, technology, engineering, and math workforce," NASA explained.

The grant will also fund training of students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), internships at the Johnson and Kennedy Space Centers, and establish an introductory engineering experience for mostly female students in a university without a formal engineering program.
