Mission 2 Winners

 

Mission 2 asked students in grades 3 through 12 to redesign a NASA technology and use it to solve a societal problem.

Fifth grade student Samuel Kyong from Frank Lamping Elementary School in Henderson, Nevada, won in the elementary age group for his idea to use hydroponics as a filter for environmental volatile organic compounds. Using a sunshield coating from the James Webb Space  Telescope, Linnea Mitchell, Molly Kernan and Kailyn Kim’s project scored them the winning spot in the middle school age group. For the high school age group, eleventh grade students Mia Lorenzo and Jihee You and tenth grade students Sarah Kim and Mirai Molde modified “Particle Contamination Mitigation Methods” to design dishes that clean themselves.
