SS. Simon & Jude Students in the Aerospace Challenge at ASU

On Monday, 35 of our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students participated in the Honeywell/Fiesta Bowl Challenge. They designed a base for people to live and work on the moon.  Just a few of the challenges that they had to deal with were:

  • How to maintain a supply of oxygen/food and water;
  • How to protect themselves from solar radiation; and
  • How to mine Helium 3 from the surface rock, process it and return it to Earth to be used as a new energy source.

These students had a chance to practice each of the 15 DWP skills while working on this project.  We would like to recognize those students at this time.
