By BBN Staff: A Belizean national studying at Lone Star College (University Park Campus) in Spring Texas, has been selected from among 304 college students to travel to NASA’s Johnson Space Center this fall.

He is Burrell Boom resident, Emil Gillett, 19.

Once at the space center, he will participate in the NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars project (NCAS) over the next five weeks.

According to a statement released today by NASA, while there, Gillett and other students will “form teams and establish fictional companies interested in Mars exploration.”

Each team according to the statement, will develop and test “a prototype rover, forming a company infrastructure, managing a budget, and developing communications and outreach.”

Gillett will additionally tour NASA facilities and undergo briefings by NASA subject matter experts.

This project is funded in part by the Minority University Research and Education Program, or MUREP, which is a body “committed to engaging underrepresented and underserved students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in authentic learning experiences to sustain a diverse workforce.”
