Student Funding Challenge: NASA USRC Drone Based Water Quality Testing Project

The Drone Based Water Sampling and Quality Testing project has been awarded a grant from the NASA University Student Research Challenge (USRC) program. This competitive grant is one of only a handful of awards in the nation awarded by NASA each year. USRC provides students, from accredited U.S. colleges or universities, with grants for their projects, and it includes the unique challenge of raising at least $2,000 funds through crowdfunding.
