Our Youth

Teen News Flash – Jan.13

Partnering with NASA

Members from the Science Club at Bishop Kearney H.S., Bensonhurst, submitted five experiments to NASA’s Expulsion Challenge and were accepted!

The students were tasked to design and build objects that sink in water in normal gravity, but will be expelled as far as possible out of the water during free fall in NASA’s 2.2 Second Drop.

Club members will build their designs in the FabLab using the laser cutter to create ridges on the surfaces of their designs and the 3-D printer to make the plastic geometric figures using Tinkercad, an online 3D software, and send them to NASA for testing.
