CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA is inviting fifth through eighth grade
students to participate in a waste limitation management and
recycling design challenge. Participants in the competition will
design and test water recycling systems that could be used for future
exploration of the moon. The top three teams will receive awards, and
the first place team will receive an expense-paid trip to NASA's
Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Teams of up to six students and one teacher or mentor should submit
their proposals and results to NASA for evaluation by Feb. 1, 2010.
Schools in the United States and its territories, science museums,
science centers and home school groups may host teams.

The winning teams will be announced in May 2010. During the winning
team's visit to Kennedy, students will gain first-hand knowledge
about NASA's missions, receive behind-the-scenes tours of NASA's
launch facilities, and learn about future aerospace and engineering

The competition is designed to engage and retain students in the
science, technology, engineering and math disciplines critical to
NASA's missions.
