This competition is a great way to get your students' minds thinking analytically about the universe and space exploration. While we suggest you use this contest as a class assignment, it's just as easy to run as an extra-credit
or after-school project.
All participants receive a certificate from NASA, in addition to the opportunity to win great local prizes and have a chance to win the international prize.
We encourage your students to use resources such as the Cassini website, other websites on the internet and
the library to research information for the essay.
