Description:
The MUREP (Minority University Research and Education Project) K1-10 Aerospace Academy made its debut at York College for the first time in 2015. Recognizing the need to increase the number of American youth who have an effective, authentic STEM experience each year prior to completing high school, and the need for NASA to do an internal consolidation, SEMAA was incorporated into MUREP, thus creating additional funding and learning opportunities to attract and retain underserved and underrepresented youth in grades K-12. NASA MAA advances student development through activity components that are fully integrated to form a comprehensive support system. Through its components, MAAs shall deliver:

(1) Curriculum Enhancement Activities (CEA), hands-on curriculum activities relevant to NASA missions,

(2) an Aerospace Education Laboratory (AEL), and

(3) an innovative Family Caf.

NASA MAA Goals:

The MUREP Aerospace Academy (MAA) goals are to: improve STEM literacy by engaging K-12 students, family members, and teachers through the integration of emerging technologies; and to educate students utilizing a STEM curriculum that meets national science, technology, engineering and mathematics standards aligned to NASAs mission directorates.

NASA MAA STEM Program is brought to the community free of charge and participating K1-10 students can earn at least 52 STEM hours/year.

Program is offered three times a year (Fall, Winter/Spring and Summer).
