NASA Power to Explore Challenge
Educators – an exciting opportunity for your class! For the Power to Explore Challenge, NASA is calling on K-12 students in the United States to research Radioisotope Power Systems (RPS), a type of nuclear “battery” used in space exploration, and dream up a new RPS-powered space mission to a destination with limited or obstructed access to light. Grand prize winners from each grade category (3 total) will receive a trip for two to NASA’s Glenn Research Center to learn about the people and technologies that enable NASA missions. Every student who submits an entry will receive a digital certificate and an invitation to a virtual event (you can watch with your class!) with NASA experts, where they’ll learn about what powers the NASA workforce to dream big and explore.
Teachers can import their google classroom for a smooth entry process! 🙂
