ABOUT NASA MEANS BUSINESS

THE HELP NASA NEEDS

A Plan: NASA is looking to you for a STEM Education Promotion Plan - one that presents strategies for (a) communicating to middle and high school students (read: Primary Audience) why STEM education is important to them and (b) communicates to the public (read: Secondary Audience) why STEM education is important to the US - its economy, its space program, and its citizens.

  • Preliminary Round (Fall 2006): Your proposal is to contain your Plan outline.
  • Finalist Round (Spring 2007): Your final presentation is to include your full Plan document.

Creative Products: NASA is also looking for three productions with which to creatively implement your Plan; specifically:

  • Preliminary Round (Fall 2006): Your proposal is to contain a 30-second video PSA storyboard, a promotional print media concept, and a promotional Internet media concept.
  • Finalist Round (Spring 2007): Your final presentation is to include a 30-second video PSA production, a promotional print media piece, and a promotional Internet media presence.

Top This!

Over the eight-year history of the NASA Means Business Student Competition, student teams have produced some pretty outstanding work.

So it follows that the bar is pretty high for those who wish to be on a Finalist Team in NMB 2007.

Take a look at these examples; this is the level of quality and creativity we would like to see you match, if not exceed!...
