Massachusetts Life Sciences Center and CASIS Launch Space Station STEM Challenge.

The Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC), and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) announced the launch of a new grant competition to allow middle schools to compete for resources to send a life sciences research experiment to the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory.  The competition is modeled on the CASIS National Design Challenge, a research competition that facilitates authentic student research and experiment design with selected experiments being sent to the ISS. The winners of both competitions will be announced at the annual ISS Research and Development Conference in Boston on July 7, 2015 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place.
