Five Las Vegas-area students are winners of this year’s NASA Optimus Prime Spinoff Promotion and Research Challenge.
The students won the competition’s “Mission 2” challenge, open to third- through 12th-graders. There were three divisions: elementary, middle and high school. They were recognized in June during an awards ceremony at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, where they also met NASA scientists and toured facilities.
