Marquette’s 21st CCLC IMPACT site is 1 of only 11 Michigan sites selected to participate in the NASA STEM Challenge.
NASA, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education, has developed four STEM Challenges to Benefit the Society (GLOBE) Science Investigation. Each STEM challenge is based upon real mission data and experiences that occur during human and robotic exploration of the solar system and the GLOBE investigation focuses on science protocols. Ten of our 5th and 6th grade students will work as a team to create and submit brief videos showcasing their responses to the challenge or investigation.
Students design and build a drag device to slow a spacecraft entry onto the Martian surface. Marquette’s student team will produce and submit a video featuring the steps of the engineering design process they followed to create their team drag device to slow the descent of a space craft or probe.
