Spacesuit Contest Phase 2
Teachers in Space has partnered with Final Frontier Design and Integrated Spaceflight Services to test and validate FFD’s launch and re-entry space suit. This space suit will be tested on a 24 parabola micro-gravity flight in October 2015. Members of the Teachers in Space staff will be on the mission, and we want you to be there too! That is why we are opening the second phase of our spacesuit-testing contest. All we need is forty applicants to fully fund the mission, and with sponsors it could be even less. Applicants can apply to this essay contest as many times as they want, as long as each submission is a unique and original essay. Just click on the link below, follow the application instructions and get your chance to be part of history!
“Your Surviving Space
workshop at CAMI was the best professional development workshop I’ve attended in 20 years of teaching. The quality of the experiences plus the cutting edge classroom content provided by Scott Wiley and Sten Odenwald was exceptional and inspiring. Teachers in Space is the Best of the Best.”
