While the 2018 school year might be winding down for most learners, five dedicated teams of iLEAD learners are diligently working on the final preparations as part of the Phase 2 Finalists for DreamUp to Space Mission 2018. From these five experiment design proposals, one will be chosen to fly to the International Space Station and conducted by astronauts on ISS. The flight is scheduled for November 2019.
For each team, the requirements of Phase 2 includes creating a short video “pitching” their experiment design, revisiting their written proposal to ensure that it meets or exceeds all requirements and developing a plan that, if their experiment is chosen, outlines how they will include more learners and the entire iLEAD community in their experience. Part of accepting this honor also means these learners will be a vital part of the iSAP DreamUp To Space Mission 2019 leadership team to share their excitement for science and space with new Learner Teams.
