Our students in the TEC STEM class, have been selected as finalist. We have two teams!
Students are asked to use their imagination and creativity to identify NASA Spinoff technology in their everyday world. Items such as memory foam, invisible braces, firefighting equipment, artificial limbs, scratch-resistant lenses, aircraft anti-icing systems, shoe insoles, water filters/purification, cochlear implants, satellite television, and long-distance telecommunications were first developed for a NASA mission and then, re-worked to make everyday life easier.
Their research and ideas, will use a combination of text, images and videos, to create a Glogster Multimedia Poster. This poster will be submitted and the student ideas will be shared with NASA. Winning teams (or individual students) are invited to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center for two days of in-depth, behind the scenes, hands-on workshops with scientists and astronauts.
Each winning team (or individual) will receive an award stipend of $4,000 to help offset expenses, generously provided by the Foundation for Technology and Privacy Outreach on behalf of our sponsors.
On April 23-30 the public will vote for the best innovation by going to this site:
