GCAA, in partnership with Education in Space, is sending experiments into space on a rocket. The launch is May 15 from the Spaceport in New Mexico. The experiments are enclosed in a 3-D printed box with work done by students in grades 6-8. When the rocket returns to Earth, the box will be returned to GCAA at the International Space Development Conference, also taking place in May. Since this is a developing project that’s happening fast, more details will be shared later.
