“Kids in Micro-g” is a student experiment design challenge geared toward grades 5-8. Its purpose is to give students a hands-on opportunity to design an experiment or simple demonstration that could be performed both in the classroom and aboard the International Space Station. Experiment challenge winners and runners-up will be selected regionally and nationally by the Education Offices of the ten NASA centers. The ten regional winners, one national winner and one national runner up winner will have their experiments conducted by the astronauts aboard the space station in the April-May 2010 timeframe. NASA will be accepting experiment proposals through Feb. 19, 2010. For more information about the Kids In Micro-g!

Be sure to take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions section to help answer questions you may have as you develop your proposal.
