If you are a grade 5 to 8 teacher or a home schooler or science center or museum educator working with grade 5 to 8 students and are looking for real world challenges that meet science and mathematics content standards, the Waste Limitation and Management of Resources Design Challenge is for you!
Form development teams of up to 6 students and a teacher or a mentor. Design a water recycling system for the unique environment of the Moon. Test your system on a simulated wastewater stream and report your proposal and its results to NASA.
Just meeting the challenge will make your students and you winners but you might do better than that. The top team nationally will win an expense-paid trip to the NASA Kennedy Space Center for VIP tours, meetings with NASA scientists and engineers, and much more!
Registration for the Waste Limitation and Management of Resources Design Challenge begins soon so check out the official website for the latest news and support materials: http://wlmr.nasa.gov/
