NASA TechRise Student Challenge


The NASA TechRise Student Challenge – a FREE, NASA STEM challenge for schools,

opens August 1st and invites student teams in sixth-12th grade to submit experiment ideas to fly on a high-altitude balloon flight. It Includes teacher professional development opportunities, free educational resources to foster STEM in the classroom and an exciting student virtual field trip in the fall. Sixty winning teams will also receive $1500 to build their experiment, a spot to test it on a NASA-sponsored flight, and technical support from our awesome NASA TechRise advisors. The challenge is a great way to get hands-on with a NASA project this school year, and we encourage teams of all skill levels to apply. Updated challenge resources (including videos, slide decks, and educator pacing guides) can all be found on the challenge website when the challenge opens in August.
