CASIS & BSA Partnership:Space Station NDC Webinar on #Earthday2015 (April 22nd) at 6:30 pm CST

Orbiting the Earth at 17,500 mph, the space station provides a unique, multidisciplinary research platform for scientific investigations improving life on Earth. 

Our new partnership with the Center for the Advancement of Science In Space (CASIS) will provide Scouts & Explorers the opportunity to send 3 experiments to the ISS through our National Design Challenge in 2015/2016. CASIS is dedicated to supporting and accelerating innovations and new discoveries that will enhance the health and well being of people and our planet. 

CASIS and the BSA Pathways to Adventure Council are launching the Space Station National Design Challenge student research competition in Chicago this spring in an effort to spark interest and innovation in young men and women in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Interested in being a part of the project? Our Space Station National Design Challenge webinar will be held on #Earthday2015 at 6:30 pm CST. Register at:

A general overview of the program will be discussed, time commitments, and any questions about the application process will be addressed. Time for questions and answers will be allotted during the webinar. Answers to questions will also be published here: http://bit.ly/1GjN5yc. Questions will only be accepted via GotoMeeting webinar chat.

The U.S. National Lab’s microgravity environment offers researchers the exclusive opportunity to conduct experiments in a setting free from the effects of gravity present on Earth. Since systems act differently in this microgravity environment, researchers are able to gather valuable insight that can help advance their work on Earth.
