Active in STEM outreach, Caleigh has been a frequent educational presenter for the NH Space Grant consortium and the UNH College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. Of special note is her project management activities as the team lead of the UNH LunaCats, whose mission was to design and build a lunar mining robot for NASA’s Annual Robotics Mining Competition. During her tenure as captain, the 2013 team won 3rd place in Mining and 1st place in Communications, and in 2014 they garnered 4th place in Mining as well as 1st place in both Communications and Social Media.
