You may have heard that the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) and the Pathway to Adventure Council have teamed up for the Space Station National Design Challenge, a student research competition in Chicago.
As the competition (which sends winning projects on a voyage to the International Space Station) draws near, participants are working to get their applications in by May 29. So for the Chicago-area Scouts needing extra motivation to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity, check out Eagle Scout and astronaut Gregory H. Johnson’s message below!
