We invite students in grades 7 through 12 to design DNA experiments for space. Students will pioneer DNA research on the International Space Station to address real-life challenges of deep space exploration.
Five finalist teams will receive mentoring from Harvard and MIT PhD scientists, present at the 2017 International Space Station R&D Conference, and receive miniPCR DNA Discovery System™ for their education institutions.
Winners will also attend Space Biology Camp and send their DNA experiment to space!
Submission deadline is April 21st 2017.
Teachers – you can turn contest submissions into a class assignment that's aligned with national standards.
