Eight high schools from six different states are participating in the High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) Extreme Science Flight Week at Ellington Field, Houston, Texas on April 5-12, 2013. Sixty-four high school students will have the once in the life time experience to fly on the Zero Gravity plane with their microgravity experiments. Their experiments are designed, fabricated and documented by over 200 HUNCH students. HUNCH students’ experiments are proposed to go to the ISS in a 1 unit NanoLab.
The 3rd Annual High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) Extreme Science Symposium is being webcast by NASA’s Digital Learning Network on May 1 at 10:00 – 12:30 PM Central Time. HUNCH Extreme Science students will be presenting their experimental results from their April, Zero-Gravity flight, which took place in Ellington Field. A distinguished group of NASA and public scientists and engineers will critique the HUNCH students’ experiments, which are proposed to fly on board the International Space Station.
