NASA, Ahoora Foundation Unite to Ignite Students’ Passion for Science, Space, and Technology

WASHINGTON — Candy, soda and other bland equipment will be a collection of a trade for teenage rocket makers competing in a What If? Live Student Design Challenge, that was kicked off Tuesday by NASA and a Ahoora Foundation of Plano, Texas. Registration is open by Feb. 28 for a worldwide contest, in that 14- to 18-year-old students will pattern initial thrust systems regulating materials that are inexpensive and easy to get.

What If? is designed to excite students about science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The idea is to rise their artistic and methodical abilities by training about a flourishing need for immature fuels and conceptualizing a car thrust complement regulating ordinarily accessible materials, including honeyed treats and carbonated beverages. Students in dual age categories, 14-16 and 17-18, might work alone or in groups of as many as four. They contingency emanate a investigate plan, write a investigate paper, rise and build a thrust system, make a video display a car in action, and contention a video to judges around YouTube.com.

A row of scientists, astronauts and educators will decider a entries and name finalists. There will be one winning pattern in any age category. Winners will be announced in May and accept special approval from NASA and Ahoora.

To register, contention research, and learn some-more about car design, a central manners and other information about a What If? Live Student Design Challenge, including perspective a two-minute video of a thrust complement in action, visit:
