FAQ

NASA SPOCS Additional Information

What is the ISS? 

The ISS is an acroynm that stands for the International Space Station! It is a mobile science lab in space that orbits the Earth! Our team will be sending our experiment to the ISS to be tested for 30 days!

Who are the Citizen Scientists?

Our Citizen Scientists are students at Russell Elementary School. They will be conducting their own experiment at home with our bacteria resistant polymers! At the end of their 30 day experiment they will be able to identify which polymers work the best! 

Can I participate if I am not a student at Russell Elementary?

We would love to encourage as many people as possible to engage in our experiment! We have included instructions for a DIY bacteria growth kit in the 'Citizen Scientist' tab so that you at home can conduct your own bacteria research!
