Some time off with the family, and working in my vegetable garden.

Located right here in Silicon Valley, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Ames Research Center contributes to virtually every major NASA mission and initiative via expertise in the following core areas:
  • Entry systems
  • Advanced Computing & IT Systems
  • Aerosciences
  • Air Traffic Management
  • Astrobiology and Life Science
  • Cost-Effective Space Missions
  • Intelligent/Adaptive Systems
  • Space and Earth Science

This incredible research center is one of 10 field centers for NASA and has been a leader in world class development and research for 70 years. 

Over 2500 people work in a variety of roles at Ames from scientists and engineers to educators and inventors. SCCLD’s Reading by Design program celebrates such creativity, inquisitiveness and innovation crucial in these exciting roles. This summer SCCLD in partnership with NASA will spotlight some these amazing people and their work at NASA Ames.
