STEAM Middle School Team Named SSEP Mission 14 Experiment Finalist
Burleson ISD, January 13, 2020
https://www.burlesonisd.net/site/default.aspx?PageType=3&DomainID=4&ModuleInstanceID=1024&ViewID=6446EE88-D30C-497E-9316-3F8874B3E108&RenderLoc=0&FlexDataID=7228&PageID=1&Comments=true/

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S., and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory. SSEP is the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and implemented as an on-orbit commercial space venture.
