MELBOURNE, FLA. —Florida Institute of Technology aerospace engineering student, Lindsay Greene, has been selected as a member of the NASA Student Ambassadors Virtual Community. She is a senior and member of the Panther’s Women’s basketball team.
Greene is one of 10 students selected from Florida and among the 105 who were chosen from among NASA interns. Other students come from universities such as Harvard, Cornell, Purdue, Penn State, Carnegie Mellon and the University of California, Los Angeles.
Growing up in North Carolina, Greene built model rockets as a child. Since elementary school her dream has been to become a NASA astronaut. “NASA will always be my ultimate career goal,” says Greene, who has already had two internships at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.
Florida Tech was a natural choice for Greene because of its close ties to NASA. The university has a noted engineering program with faculty members who are former NASA engineers.
Selected ambassadors will interact with NASA, share information, make professional connections, collaborate with peers and help NASA inspire and engage future interns and fellows.
