[Educators & Students Higher Education]
The Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Project provides a unique academic experience for undergraduate students to successfully propose, design, fabricate, fly and evaluate a reduced-gravity experiment of their choice over the course of six months. The overall experience includes scientific research, hands-on experimental design, test operations, and educational and public outreach activities. The project gives students an outstanding educational opportunity and attracts outstanding young scholars to careers in math, science and engineering. The project introduces young scholars to careers with NASA and the space program, encourages research and testing of serious scientific and engineering ideas, and educates both the general public and school-aged children about educational and professional opportunities available with NASA.
Duration: Six months of preparation is required, with nine days onsite.
