This yearlong program provides high school students with the opportunity to work in a team setting to conceive, design, build, test, integrate, and qualify computer-controlled custom science experiments that are launched to the International Space Station. The experiments are active on the ISS for 30-days. Each experiment module contains a digital camera and student-programmed micro- controller. Participation fulfills the AMSE Research Project requirement for AMSE Honors students.
