Generation Beyond is an initiative designed to get students interested in STEM learning and deep space exploration. Today’s students are tomorrow’s STEM professionals who will be helping in getting humans to Mars — and you could be one of them!

If all things space excite you, here’s a chance to participate in a hands-on challenge! Generation Beyond is running a student video challenge contest where individual middle school students or groups of students can submit a design of the living quarters for the Orion Spacecraft — NASA’s new human spacecraft designed to take humans farther in space than they’ve ever gone before!

Submission: Register for the 2016 Video Challenge. Then create and present in a one- to two-minute video a Mars Mission habitation design — what internal environment, tools and equipment would humans need to stay healthy and safe in space? Explain your design and accompany your video with a visual presentation.

Criteria: Students will be judged on scientific knowledge, creativity, effective communication and presentation skills.

Prizes: First place prize for individual contestants or teams is $10,000 + and travel to a unique space experience! Second place gets awarded $5,000 and third place — $2,500.

Deadline for submission: December 15th, 2016

Get more details about the video challenge — and take the opportunity to showcase your science skills and creativity!
