Quest for Space
Quest for Space is a program designed to give students hands-on experience in coding and engineering. Students in 7th & 8th grades may choose Quest as an elective that meets twice each week. Students design and code an experiment during these classes. Then their experiment is sent to the astronauts at the International Space Station to conduct their experiment in a limited gravity environment. The data is then sent back to our students so they can see the results in comparison with the experiment done here on earth.
