The collaboration between The Michaelis Foundation for Global education (TMFGE) and NASA engages students—current, future, and alumni—in the process of building their global connections with other bright students in more than 12 countries.
The Simulation Exploration Experience (SEE) joins students, industry, professional associations, and faculty together for an annual modeling and simulation (M&S) challenge. SEE, led by NASA, champions collaborative collegiate-level modeling and simulation by providing a venue for students to work in highly dispersed inter-university teams to design, develop, test, and execute a simulated lunar mission. Participating teams gain valuable knowledge, skills, and increased employability by working closely with industry professionals, NASA, and faculty advisors.
Students are highly sought after this global experience.

The Asteroid Mission Initiative and The Michaelis Foundation for Global Education (TMFGE) announced a significant partnership today that will cultivate the future generation of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) students while increasing opportunity for those young students by strengthening connections between educational institutions and careers.
“America’s economic prosperity depends on building a talented workforce of problem solvers, critical thinkers and collaborators, skills taught through STEM education,” said Carla Michaelis, TMFGE VP of education. “The Michaelis Foundation for Global Education is proud to partner with The Asteroid Mission Initiative to offer very young students, especially those currently under-represented, greater resources and more direct pathways to in-demand careers in the STEM field” commented Jefferson Michaelis, TMFGE President.
Expanding student access to STEM education is an issue of paramount importance in an increasingly global economy. Job growth in STEM fields promises to be great. It is projected 2.4 million job openings in STEM nationwide through 2018.
“The concern for STEM shortages tends to focus on the possibility of an insufficient supply of STEM workers, but the deeper problem is a broader scarcity of workers with basic STEM competencies across the entire economy. Demand for the core competencies is far greater than the 5 percent traditional STEM employment share suggests, and stretches across the entire U.S. job market, touching virtually every industry.”
TMFGE is taking action by giving students in selected schools access to high-quality STEM programs that equip them with the knowledge and skills needed for future success.
