National STEM Projects
With hands-on experiments, students build inquiry and problem-solving skills as they learn to do real science and contribute to national databases.
Investigate the effects of outer space on the germination of tomato seeds. This hands-on program builds student's scientific inquiry and experimentation skills.
Lunar Rover Research Challenge
This competition-based space project, launching in Fall 2022, will challenge students to design a lunar rover research mission.
Participants learn about the science behind climate change, the impact our clothing system has on the environment, and how they can take action to make a difference.
Participants study the key environmental conditions that are monitored to keep astronauts healthy on the ISS and how those conditions compare to their own classroom or living space.
