MHS Students Win NASA Challenge!

A team of MHS students from the Space Exploration II program has won the NASA App Development Challenge! This challenge, a new pilot program in the agency’s Next Generation STEM Initiative, asked middle and high school teams to design an app to visualize three minutes of simulated test data in support of the June flight test of the Orion spacecraft’s Launch Abort System (LAS), called Ascent Abort-2 (AA-2).

The test is to demonstrate whether the LAS can send Orion and its crew a safe distance if an emergency arises during ascent to orbit. This flight test is a critical step to demonstrate Orion’s safety as NASA leads the next steps of human exploration to the Moon and into deep space.

 Two winning teams (Millburn & Tulsa) have been selected for an all-expense-paid trip to the Kennedy Space Center at the end of June where they will meet with scientists and engineers and work with the team to possibly run their app with actual flight test data. 

 Congratulations to Millburn’s ”Team Mercury:” Darcy Gruer, Claire Yan, Sarah Rose, Max Koenig, Javier Coindreau, and Andrew Chen.

 Thanks to Challenge Lead Teacher John Yi, and Dave Farrell, Hilton Seibert, and Gabe Rhodes for their support in this mission.
