We've been awarded the NASA Program Growth Grant for $6,500!  We are one of only 10 Minnesota schools who received a grant from NASA!  This means that our regional competition registration is completely covered by NASA and we can use the money that has been fundraised so far for other important expenses.

As a requirement for our NASA Grant every member of our team must complete a survey before January 5th, 2013.  Please go HERE and complete the survey, you'll need the team name and number from the left side of this page .
