Two local colleges have joined forces with NASA in an effort to create a sustainable community that will allow for education and research at Moffett Field.

The University of California-Santa Cruz and the Foothill-De Anza Community College announced that they have joined NASA Ames Research Center to create an educational opportunity on 75 acres of land in the NASA Research Park.

The goal of the partnership to create an environmentally sustainable community that will prepare the workforce of the future while also allowing for technological research, UCSC Chancellor George Blumenthal said…

Carnegie Mellon University, Santa Clara University and San Jose State University may also eventually join in the partnership.

Yeah, I know it’s just a press release pumping up the joint venture; but, it sounds like enough fun that I’d recommend it to students. Get all of this crowd together with the NASA Ames folks – and something truly useful might come of it.

Toss in Carnegie-Mellon and I might consider coming out of retirement to sell whatever they invent. :)
