Finalists chosen in Shuttle Student Project

Authors


Abstract

Ten finalists from 191 semifinal entries have been selected in the first national Space Shuttle Student Involvement Project, a joint venture of NASA and the National Science Teachers Association. The objective of the project is to stimulate the study of science and technology in grades 9 through 12 by engaging students in a competition to develop experiments suitable for flight aboard the Space Shuttle.

Interdisciplinary teams of teachers, scientists, and engineers reviewed more than 1500 proposals; grouped them into 10 geographic regions; and selected the semifinalists. Regional conferences for the semifinalists were held this spring at various NASA field centers.
