KSC Year 4 Winners Announced!

One of elements that makes the Kids’ Science Challenge so unique is the grand-prize!  The winning student(s) in each topic wins the opportunity to travel to work side-by-side one of the KSC scientists.  Together the student and scientist work to bring the winning idea to life.  This year is no exception.  Joshua Yi will be heading to NYC where he is going to build his winning idea for Zero Waste.  His day will begin at Caraustar where he will use computer technology to design the package specifics and see the machinery cut it out, and his day will end at Design and Source working with Laura Tufariello on the design specifics.  And he gets free time to explore New York City and visit some cool places – like the Intrepid!  Carlisle Patete and Isabella St.Onge will be traveling to Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX to work with Michele Perchonok and Vickie Kloeris who create meals for astronauts.  There they will have the chance to discuss their entry and simulate their idea (their idea coming to life would mean a trip to Mars, too bad that cannot be done!).  And see some very cool places at NASA like Mission Control!  Mason Ganoung will be heading to Portland, Oregon where he will work with Dr. David Shepherdson at the Portland Zoo to see test his idea about birds working together.  And he gets the chance to visit Mt Saint Helens!!  The students will be writing about their trips and posting on this blog.  Check back in the coming weeks to hear more and see photos of their experience.  If you want to know more about their winning idea click here.
