First 2 Network is offering a virtual, summer STEM Camp!
This camp is for rising college freshmen in STEM majors.
It will be completely virtual for 5 weeks, meeting once a week for 2 hours, to work with students on math, chemistry, and study skills. In addition, it will connect these students with faculty from WVU, Fairmont State, and Glenville State, as well as fellow students from across the state. The flyer is attached below with a link to apply.
Audience: Educators, Parents and Students in Grades K-12 Deadline: July 26
This summer, the Perseverance rover will launch on a trip to explore Mars. Perseverance has six aluminum wheels with S-shaped treads called grousers that will help the rover drive across the sandy, rocky and hilly Martian terrain. To develop this wheel design, NASA engineers had to brainstorm ideas, create 3D designs and test different wheel prototypes.
What could wheels for future Mars rovers look like? We want innovative ideas from K-12 students! Use your creativity to design a rover wheel best equipped for the Red Planet’s terrain. Create a digital 3D model of your reinvented wheel, and write a short description of your design. While digital 3D models are encouraged, young inventors in grades K-5 can opt to provide an image of a sketch or mock-up instead of a 3D model. Out-of-this world entries will be featured with a NASA gold star in the challenge gallery.
