NHHPC Middle School Asteroid Contest - 2013
October 9, 2012
NASA, Clemson University, Orion's Quest, Square One Education Network, and other members of the NASA Human Health and Performance Center collaborated to develop and conduct an educational contest for students in the 6th through 8th grades, approximately between the ages of 11 and 14. Our goal is to engage more students in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and to stimulate students by providing an opportunity for them to explore and discover.

We invited students from across the nation to academically challenge themselves as they dive into the world of science and mathematics with the NASA Asteroid Contest. Prepare a presentation to NASA that outlines your mission plans for human crew to travel to an asteroid! Which asteroid should we visit? What is the mission goal? What challenges will you need to identify, and how will you solve the challenge?
