We would like to congratulate QAHS students Jordan Klos and Ananya Garg who took out first place in the “Titania 9-11" division of the NASA Scientist for a Day competition.
The NASA Scientist for a Day competition challenges students in Years 5 -11 to think like scientists. This year, students from all around the world were encouraged to examine real spacecraft images from three moons that NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft briefly visited during its historic journey through the solar system.
Their mission was to study the three of Uranus' moons: Ariel, Oberon and Titania. Once they selected the moon they think would be the best place to return to with another spacecraft to learn even more, participants wrote an essay to convince NASA to go back and why.
Winning students and their schools will have a NASA JPL scientist or engineer teleconference into their classroom during the year and their winning essay will be posted on the NASA Scientist for a Day website.
