Our team has been selected by NASA for funding and to send our experiment to the International Space Station (ISS). During December, our team presented to a panel of NASA and NanoRacks professionals to pitch our experiment. Our team was selected from a pool of student teams from all around the country. The top five teams were selected from the following universities: Arkansas State University, Columbia University in the City of New York, Stanford University and the University of New Hampshire at Manchester!
We are incredibly excited to have been chosen for funding! This spring semester we will be working on preliminary testing of our experiment as well as conducting the Citizen Science portion to narrow down our polymers that will be sent to the ISS! Our launch to the ISS will take place winter 2021 or spring 2022!
