NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is pleased to announce the winners of NASA’s 2018 OPSPARC. In collaboration with Mad Science Group, Inc., a leading science enrichment provider; prominent science fiction and fantasy book imprint, Tor Books; certified privacy and consent manager, PRIVO; and The Foundation for Technology and Privacy Outreach; the challenge called for students in grades 3 through 12 to “Be the Spark” and find a new purpose for an existing NASA technology.
Students created their own innovations inspired by NASA technologies and shared their ideas on student-designed digital poster boards called “Glogs,” using a cloud-based, interactive learning and multimedia platform made by Glogster. This year, there were eight winners in the three age groups for the Glogster only track: elementary, middle and high school.
