The 2017 Barboza Space Center Fellowship Program

The 2017 Barboza Space Center Fellowship Program

Students from both middle and high school had an opportunity to learn about the new Barboza Space Center STEAM++ Occupy Mars Learning Adventures Fellowship Programs.  These new programs gave ten students from the Long Beach CAMS California Academy of Mathematics and Science High School a chance to join a "Tiger Team."  This team worked on soving challenges that could be found at NASA, Boeing and Space X.   In addition, we gave a series of Barboza Space Center astronuat training challenges and displayed our complete robot and satellite collection.  This program was offered free to the Long Beach Unified School District.   We invite you to follow our blog at

What does the future look like for the Barboza Center Tiger Teams?

We want our students to have the very best equipment available to complete ther space science experiments and project-based research.

edge® Multiparameter pH Meter

Hanna Instruments is proud to introduce the world’s most innovative pH meter: edge®. edge’s groundbreaking design is the culmination of Hanna’s vision, design capabilities, integrated production and world class R&D. The edge meter is only 0.5” thick yet rich in features to accommodate the needs of a vast amount of customers. For those that prefer very simplistic operation there is a basic mode operation with a simplified menu and options. For those who require advanced features there is the full featured standard operating mode. The edge HI2020 pH kit can be upgraded at any time with additional probes to measure Conductivity or Dissolved Oxygen.
edge features a 5.5” LCD display that you can clearly view from over 5 meters. The large display and it’s wide 150° viewing angle provide one of the easiest to read LCDs in the industry.
edge features a capacitive touch keypad that gives a distinctive, modern look. Since the keypad is part of the screen, your buttons can never get clogged with sample residue.
edge features clear, full text guides displayed on the bottom of the screen. There is no need to decipher scrambled abbreviations or symbols; these helpful messages guide you through every process quickly and easily.

2018 Barboza Space Center Fellowship Program

The Barboza Space Center was founded under the belief that students need hands on experience in the areas of STEAM++ (science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, mathematics, computer languages and foreign languages).  Today, The Barboza Space Center is actively developing the technologies to prototype satellites, robots and Martian habitats with the ultimate goal of enabling humans to occupy Mars.


The Barboza Space Center is currently seeking talented individuals for our Fellowship Program at the CAMS High School location on the campus of California State University Dominquez Hills. The Barboza Space Center engineering Student Fellows play a significant role in the design, development, testing and manufacturing of spaceflight hardware. Here at The Barboza Space Center, you will obtain invaluable hands-on technical experience that you can’t learn in a classroom. Our engineering and science teams will help you to roll up your sleeves and apply textbook theory and lab experience to creating solutions for real aerospace challenges. You will gain practical experience by participating in actual space hardware design, building and repair projects. The most successful candidates for the Barboza Space Center Fellowship Program have a history of significant contributions to hands-on extracurricular engineering projects in addition to a strong academic record.
