The Office of STEM Engagement at NASA Glenn Research Center congratulates the following awardees for the Summer 2024 STEM Collaboration Opportunity.  This solicitation requested proposals from youth-serving organizations and formal/informal education institutions to receive professional development and implement NASA STEM content for students in grades 5-9 from May 20, 2024, through August 30, 2024. NASA Glenn’s Office of STEM Engagement has developed a new Make it NASA activity called Start Your Engines.  In this activity, student teams design and test innovative methods to improve the performance of a real Stirling engine. Student’s experience connects directly to current research NASA is doing with thermodynamic power sources that are essential for any future deep space missions. This opportunity allowed each organization to submit a brief proposal for collaboration with NASA with an option to request funding for up to $2,000.00 for professional development and materials to implement the content with students.
