MS/US Students compete in 2019 Cities in Space Competition
On Friday, November 9th, a group of our Middle and Upper School students traveled to Austin, Texas, to compete in the annual Cities in Space competition. Held each fall, the Cities in Space™ Competition coincides with the New Worlds Conference, and offers students access to those who currently work in the space industry and space-oriented academia. Hosted by New Worlds Conference 2018, students from across Texas came together to present, compete and learn from one another about building a new world beyond Earth and how to create a surviving and thriving community. In addition to presenting their own projects, students had the opportunity to listen to speakers at the conference, and to interact with scientists, engineers, NASA experts, New Space leaders, and astronauts.
Once again, our Allen Academy students went into the competition with passion and enthusiasm, and did a wonderful job of representing our school! With over 500 student participants, three projects from Allen Academy are headed for the moon in 2019, as we had winners in HS Emerging Technologies (Sirius Inner Space Resources), HS Video (Stella Folium), and MS 3D Model (Magnificent Martians), and an awesome entry with the Juno team on the moon Callisto! Way to go, Rams!
