DIME (Dropping In a Microgravity Environment) and WING (What If No Gravity?) encourage student teams to design and build a science experiment that will then be tested next spring in a NASA microgravity drop tower at the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.
DIME is for high school teams and WING is for student teams in grades 6-9. These programs are school-year long projects which mimic the research process used by NASA and academic researchers. Four (4) DIME teams will be invited to participate in DIME Drop Days at NASA Glenn Research Center in April 2011. The WING teams’ experiments will be tested by the NASA WING staff.
DIME and WING proposals are due by November 1, 2011. For more information, visit http://spaceflightsystems.grc.nasa.gov/DIME.html
