STUDENT NEWS: Students spend time at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab

Art majors from Wilkinson College spent time this January (2011) interterm at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA.

Professor Lia Halloran's Art 329 class spent the month learning about new missions and science projects such as, the new MSL Mars Rover to be launched in 2011, NuSTAR, and SMAP.

They met with NASA Historians, Animators, Artist in Resident, Project Managers and visited the materials lab where all components are assembled.

They had the opportunity to visit the control deck, see the Rover being assembled and speak with project scientists about each project.
