The NASA Nebraska Space Grant and Experimental Program to Stimulate Research (EPSCoR) has, under the leadership of Dr. Hank Lehrer of the UNO Aviation Institute, initiated the Nebraska Native American Outreach Program (NNAOP). The NNAOP focuses on the use of aeronautics to improve the math, science, and technology skills of not only K -12 students but for higher education students as well. The three pillars of the initiative are Infrastructure and Partnership Building, Motivation of Students, and Curriculum Enhancement/Teacher Training.
