Knox County STEM program is taking students to the International Space Station!

Special program being sponsored by Knox County Schools' STEM Instructional Department:

Students working in multigrade teams of 5 from around the county will design their own microgravity experiment to run on the International Space Station!
You can come to the L&N THIS Saturday from 11:30 – 1:00 for more information OR visit our website (http://stem-k12.knoxschools.org) after March 1 for more info.

  • Students in grades 5 – 12 can go to any of the 7 participating school locations after school beginning March 3 (exact days and times will be published on March 1).
  • From March 3 – April 21 you will work in teams of 5 with people from multiple grades (from 5 – 9, grades 10 – 12 will mentor) in after school sessions to design your own microgravity experiment and write a proposal for submission
  • Three finalist projects will be selected by May 1 and out of those 1 will be chosen to go to the ISS
  • All other projects will run "ground truths" over the summer and fall.  When the one comes back from the ISS we'll have a space symposium systemwide to share results.
Come be a part of America's space research program!  Open to ALL Knox County students!
