STEM in the News

Exciting ways students and the community are connecting with STEM.

The NASA WEAR Challenge for middle school and high school students gives Artemis Generation students an opportunity to design wearable radiation countermeasures for deep space exploration. Protecting deep space astronauts from high-energy charged particles and solar particle events (SPE) is important to exploration and the Artemis program.

High school students ignite their interest in science and engineering through NASA innovations in Launchpad.

Although this year is a different learning experience for us all, BioBuilder Educational Foundation is committed to providing science students, teachers, and their parents with the online resources they need for a successful academic year.

Created specifically for middle school students, BioBuilder is offering a new program, BioBuilders 6-7-8, adapted from our high school curriculum. This program can accommodate virtual, in-person, and hybrid classroom models, and gives students an introduction to BioBuilder's synthetic biology curriculum and opportunity to pursue a group project in biodesign, under the supervision of BioBuilder Teaching Fellows.

Join the Artemis Generation and take on a challenge or help solve a problem.

These are primarily for college students. Current projects include rovers, robotics, and spacesuit interface technology.

See the Artemis Student Challenge page for more details.

The NASA Artemis Generation offers contests, activities, and resources on space exploration. These activities are open to students at home as well as school.

See our At School listings for more information.

Imagine leading a one-week expedition on the moon and write an essay that tells NASA all about it!

NASA is returning to the Moon and creating a sustained presence to use as a springboard for Mars exploration.

14th Annual RFTS Competition

Kids have missed out on far too much already.

When they return give them something exciting to look forward to – a Rocket Competition!

This year’s deadline extended to December 31

The founders of Latinas in STEM are  first generation American women who have been the first in their family to attend college. We are also MIT graduates with careers in industry and a long track record of community service.

We know first-hand that there are barriers to entry for women in STEM fields. Those barriers are compounded for Latinas due to a lack of role models, lagging outreach and overall limited parental awareness. We are a force from the community for the community to inspire and empower parents and K-12 students to pursue STEM fields, and to help college students and professionals thrive in their careers.
