GST, Destination SPACE, Inc., and the NASA IV&V ERC seek to inspire and empower students to become the next generation of STEM leaders.
In coordination with NASA IV&V Education Resource Center (ERC), Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST) and Destination SPACE, Inc. offered a hands-on STEM Space Camp to high school students in Fairmont, West Virginia July 20-24, 2020.
This camp was primarily led by three of our former students! Brothers Tyler and Austin Gleydura designed and 3D printed their own unique kits for our students, and Lauren Ballard led data analytics. We made programmable robots, weather stations, and stomp rockets. It was a full week of fun!
Former student Tyler Gleydura designed and 3D printed Arduino robot kits for our students. No soldering or special equipment is needed to build them.
Austin Gleydura designed weather station kits that students built using a small breadboard. Students collected data in their own homes and backyards!
After collecting weather data, students learn how to make sense of their datasets. Lauren Ballard led students through a data analysis activity.
Bob spoke to us about exciting student rocket launches in Utah.
We learned all about the Perseverance, NASA's new Mars rover.
Students constructed their own stomp rockets!
