JHHS Students Go Weightless

microgravity

Students from Jackson Hole High School are on their ways to Florida to participate in the High school students United with NASA to Create Hardware Extreme Science Micro-gravity Experiments there as part of an engineering capstone project. These experiments are to be conducted on the micro-gravity plane at the Johnson Space Monday. The team is using ferro fluids made with a paraffin wax carrier so that the substance is solid at room temperature, but can be shaped into a part when melted. The three-dimensional part they planning to create is to be done within a microgravity environment.  The objective of the project is to design an experiment that could help astronauts mold replacement parts in zero gravity.  The engineering campstone project is part of a Project Lead the Way program designed to get students interested in science and engineering.
