NASA TechRise Student Challenge

From environmental research to developing technologies near the edge of space, schools are invited to join NASA in its mission to advance space exploration and enhance our knowledge of Earth.

Students in grades 6–12 at a US public, private, or charter school, including those in US territories, are encouraged to team up with classmates to develop an experiment for this year’s NASA TechRiser vehicle—the high-altitude balloon. The high-altitude balloon will offer more than four hours of flight time at 70,000 feet and provide exposure to Earth’s atmosphere plus views of the planet.

A total of 60 winning teams will each be awarded $1,500 to build their experiment. They will also be awarded a flight box in which to build their experiment and an assigned spot to test it on a NASA-sponsored balloon flight. During the build phase, the winning teams will receive technical support from Future Engineers advisers, who will help students learn the skills they need to turn their experiment idea into reality. No experience is necessary to join the NASA TechRise Challenge.

Deadline: Students should submit their proposed experiments by 11:59 p.m. (PT) on October 24, 2022.
