It is with great excitement that we welcome a new and very important member of the The Mars Generation team. Beginning immediately Nicole Chase, currently seeking a Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems from Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, will join The Mars Generation staff as our Student Space Ambassador Program Director (SSAPD). We are excited to have found a student who is dedicated not only to her own studies but is also committed to STEM education, mentoring, and the future of space exploration.
Our SSA program is a unique program which, in addition to providing a positive and supportive online community of teachers, parents and students through a private Facebook group, provides stories, resources and materials for students who want to make a difference in their communities. The program is ready for a leader like Chase to grow the vision to it’s full potential.
Prior to her graduate studies, Chase earned a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience, with a minor in General Sciences, and a Bachelor of Arts in Geography, with a minor in Chemistry, from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. During her undergraduate years, Chase helped to organize, plan, and execute numerous events on BGSU’s campus, held six leadership positions, and attended many regional and national leadership conferences. She is very excited to bring her knowledge and experience to The Mars Generation as the Director of the Student Space Ambassador Program.
Please join us in welcoming Nicole to The Mars Generation leadership team. It is the dedication of time and knowledge of people like Nicole that will allow our program to grow and advance. Together, we can change the world!
