HUNCH Extreme Science Symposium

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.

Denver Flight Week Exploratory Meeting

Denver Flight Week Exploratory Meeting at Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum on January 18, 2013

This meeting was help to explore the possibility of bringing the Zero Gravity Plane to the Denver area.  The aim of a Denver flight week would be to allow the HUNCH schools in the area to experience a flight week locally with the support of universities and industry.

Thank you all for participating.  It is with your support that this project will become a reality.

If you are interested in learning more about this incredible opportunity please contact Flo Gold at 406-690-2661.

Congratulations to HUNCH Microgravity Team at Overland High School, Aurora, CO

The team of students presented two poster sessions about their HUNCH experiments at the 2012 Rocky Mountain Regional American Chemical Society Meeting in Westminster, CO on October 17-20.  The student participants were Jacob Donohoue, Cynthia Turcios and Jericho Oviedo.  Their mentor Dr. John Frost also presented in the analytical oral session about the HUNCH experiments.

Below is the posters of the “Low pressure distillation in microgravity using commercially available materials as phase separators” that was presented by Jericho Oviedo and the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy in dynamic magnetic environments” that was presented by Jacob Donohoue and Cynthia Turcios.
