Two Mississippi State University student-led engineering teams have won an award from the Mississippi Space Grant Consortium Student Led STEM Activities Program.
The Space Cowboys Rocket Team and Xipiter UAS Team each earned approximately $15,000 to support team activities. The two teams will use their award funding to offset expenses associated with participating in student design, build and fly competitions.
