STILLWATER, OK -- An Oklahoma State University junior from Tulsa is spending the fall semester as an intern at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia. 

Nicole Weidman,  who is in the NASA Undergraduate Student Research Program, works with a NASA mentor in the Mission Planning Lab on a Satellite Tool Kit, a powerful computer program that helps to plan out sounding rocket missions.  

“The work that I do here is very valuable to the facility and it is great to know what I am doing is of worth,” said Weidman. “I feel like I have learned so much and I have only been here three weeks. It is a great program and I am honored to be a part of it. Flight interests me, and when you are interested in something, studying does not feel like something you have to do, but rather something you want to do.”

According to a news release from OSU, Weidman is a 2007 graduate of Tulsa Memorial High School.  

She expects to receive degrees in both aerospace and mechanical engineering in May, 2011 from OSU.
