NASA Kids in Micro-g Challenges Students to Design an Experiment for the International Space Station

NASA Kids in Micro- g is a student experiment design challenge geared toward grades 5-8. Its purpose is to give students a hands-on opportunity to design an experiment or simple demonstration that could be performed both in the classroom and by astronaut crews aboard the International Space Station.

Experiment challenge winners and runners-up will be selected by a panel consisting of microgravity scientists, International Space Station operations and NASA education personnel, and classroom teachers. The national winner and five runners-up will have their experiments conducted by the astronauts aboard the International Space Station in the March-May 2011 timeframe.

NASA will be accepting experiment proposals through Dec. 8, 2010.
