UCF science students take NASA Launch Challenge

Over 500 engineering, math, and science students from middle schools, high schools, and colleges (including UCF) from 29 states are participating in NASA’s 2012 Student Launch Projects Flight Challenge – an annual competition challenging their problem-solving skills and giving them real-world experience to complement the science, mathematics, and engineering lessons they study in the classroom.

“Just as NASA partners with innovative companies such as ATK to pursue the nation’s space exploration mission, these young rocketeers pool their talent and ingenuity to solve complex engineering problems and fly sophisticated machines,” said Tammy Rowan, manager of Marshall’s Academic Affairs Office.
