JPL Seeks Students With Science Projects
This is a feature from the NASA/JPL Education Office.
05.25.10 -- NASA would like to honor students' interest and enthusiasm for science, technology, engineering and mathematics by inviting selected students to display their projects at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's "Student Showcase" on Saturday, June 12 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. This event will be an opportunity to show students' work, let students share their work with peers and interact with NASA/JPL scientists and engineers.
We are asking teachers to spread the word to students who may quality for this event. A full list of qualifications and registration information can be found at http://education.jpl.nasa.gov/studentshowcase .
Other activities for the students and their mentor or parents include learning about NASA/JPL missions and hearing about NASA careers and internship opportunities. Tours will be offered of JPL facilities like the Space Flight Operations Facility and Spacecraft Assembly Facility (where the next Mars rover is being assembled).
Advanced registration is required for each student. Each student may be accompanied by up to two additional people. The event is free but space is limited to a maximum of 200 students. Small team projects are welcome. The displays must meet science fair safety standards and all dynamic or kinetic, electrical, chemical and biological aspects must be disclosed as part of the registration process. Please keep you project intact between now and then!
