iLEAD and Maker Learning Network learners in grades 5-12 are invited to apply to join one of two DreamUp to Space Launch Teams, featuring experiments designed by learners at SCVi and iLEAD Exploration!
Selected team members will run experiments in preparation for the actual experiments that will launch to space to be run by astronauts on the International Space Station with a target date of March 2021.
Team members will collaborate with facilitators and mentors at each stage. They’ll also be involved in promoting their mission, including creating videos and writing blogs. They’ll fund-raise for experiment-related expenses as well as the chance to travel with their families to Kennedy Space Center, where they could present their experiment and watch it blast to space!
Watch our DreamUp to Space Launch Teams’ videos to understand more about the experiments:
- What is the Effect of Microgravity on Vigna angularis (Adzuki Beans)?
- What is the Effect of Microgravity on Daucus carota (Carrot Seeds)?
