Competing against students from nine countries on four continents, three Collin College students discovered a main belt asteroid now known as “2010 CK12,” between Mars and Jupiter, through a project of the Collin College Center for Advanced Studies in Mathematics and Natural Sciences in partnership with NASA.

In addition, Collin College students have exclusive access to our pre-admission partnerships with universities, Weekend College, eCollin, the Honors Institute, renovated campuses and much more.
