2006 Quest Challenge - Grades 5-8 design building opportunity
NASA's Exploration Systems Mission Directorate presents the 2006 Quest Challenge. To prepare for exploration on the moon and Mars, NASA uses sites on Earth to simulate living and working on extraterrestrial surfaces. Students in grades 5-8, are challenged to design and build a model of an Earth-based research station that will support living adaptively and working efficiently on the moon. Registration is now open. Preliminary designs are due in late October 2006.
