NASA TechRise Student Challenge opens Aug. 1

The NASA TechRise Student Challenge – a free, NASA STEM challenge for schools opens Aug.  1.

Student teams in sixth-12th grade are invited to submit experiment ideas to fly on a high-altitude balloon flight. The challenge includes teacher professional development opportunities, free educational resources to foster STEM in the classroom and an exciting student virtual field trip in the fall.

Sixty winning teams will also receive $1,500 to build their experiment, a spot to test it on a NASA-sponsored flight, and technical support from our awesome NASA TechRise advisors. The challenge is a great way to get hands-on with a NASA project this school year, and teams of all skill levels are encouraged to apply.

Updated challenge resources (including videos, slide decks, and educator pacing guides) can all be found on the challenge website HERE when the challenge opens in August.
