NASA Quest announces the LIMA II Challenge for students in grades 4-8. In this challenge, students become scientists and propose Antarctic research. Using the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica, the first true-color high-resolution satellite view of the Antarctic continent, students must develop a research question and debate the value of studying the chosen feature.
Registration is currently open and educational resources are available online. The challenge begins on Oct. 1, 2008, with a live webcast. Preliminary proposals are due Nov. 5, 2008.
