NASA says it’s inviting fifth- through eighth-grade U.S. students to take part in a water limitation management and recycling design competition.
“Participants in the competition will design and test water recycling systems that could be used for future exploration of the moon,” the space agency said in a statement. “The top three teams will receive awards, and the first place team will receive an expense-paid trip to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.”
Teams should consist of up to six students and one teacher or mentor, with proposals and results submitted for evaluation by Feb. 1. Schools in the United States and its territories, science museums, science centers and home school groups may host teams.
Officials said the competition is designed to engage and retain students in the science, technology, engineering and math disciplines critical to NASA’s missions.
“Kennedy Space Center offers a wonderful educational and entertainment experience to students and to people of all ages,” adds Patrick Pulliam of The Official Ticket Center.
The Official Ticket Center always maintains an abundant supply of Kennedy Space Center tickets and anticipates visitor demand well in advance of peak periods.
“The nation’s space program has been in the forefront of worldwide technological innovation and is a source of pride for the United States in terms of our achievements. We are strong advocates of having Central Florida-bound tourists visit this wonderful attraction,” Pulliam says.
Kennedy Space Center tickets are always available through the Official Ticket Center, and they also maintain timely information, including all scheduled launch dates, attractions and tickets to purchase for Kennedy Space Center. The Official Ticket Center is a favorite and one of the most recommended tickets source, including discount tickets for visitors to Kennedy Space Center and Walt Disney World.
