Middle and High School Students and Educators,

Join the Artemis generation! This December NASA is launching the NASA WEAR STEM Challenge. This opportunity gives middle and high school aged students the task to design wearable radiation countermeasures for deep space exploration. Protecting Artemis astronauts from high-energy charged particles and solar particle events (SPE) are important to exploration. You and your team can join the challenge and participate in NASA’s exploration of deep space. To participate in WEAR, lead educators must register to participate in the challenge by January 24, 2020.

During the challenge, teams will participate in webinars to learn more about deep space radiation and the development of countermeasures. The challenge ends with the submission of video proposals from registered teams. The top proposals will receive invitations to participate in the culminating event at a NASA center.
