Monday was our Klein in Space Day of Design. Hundreds of students, teachers and community volunteers packed into the Klein ISD Multipurpose Center to spend the day designing a science experiment in the hopes of sending it to the International Space Station.
There was some real science taking place with a variety of experiments developing, which encouraged high-level critical thinking and problem-solving. Students seized the opportunity to consult with industry experts throughout the day thanks to the many community partners offering their time, skills and knowledge.
None of this would have happened without our event partner, the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program. The SSEP is a model U.S. National STEM Education Initiative who strives to give students an authentic research experience. The winning student team, which will be announced next month, will have the opportunity to watch their experiment lift off from Cape Canaveral on its way to the International Space Station.
Thanks to all of the community partners, sponsors and volunteers who selflessly gave of their time and resources to help our students explore their purpose. And a special shout out to our campus team sponsors, our terrific Teaching and Learning team for a seamless event and for always thinking innovatively for students. And who knows? This day of design may have ignited a spark in a student to explore a STEM career pathway.
