UOG students attend NASA Space Grant student symposium at UH

University of Guam students John Tristan Palanca and Allen Jake Aromin presented their research at the Hawai‘i NASA Space Grant Fellowship and Traineeship Symposium at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa in April 2017.

Senior computer science major Palanca and senior secondary education major Aromin are NASA Space Grant fellows at the University of Guam. During the spring semester, the students chose the Mars Ice Challenge as their research project and designed and built hardware that can extract water from simulated Martian subsurface ice.

 “This fellowship has been a tremendous opportunity and really opened up doors,” said Palanca. “We are so grateful to the Hawai‘i Space Grant, the University of Guam and RCUOG.”

The Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium (HSGC) comprises several universities and community colleges in Hawai‘i and the University of Guam.
