Local Science Stars Compete for Their Space in the Finals
Congratulations to "Starfish Prime" from Basha Accelerated Middle School, the 2013 Honeywell Fiesta Bowl Aerospace Challenge Champion!
The Honeywell Fiesta Bowl Aerospace Challenge presented by US Airways and Mayo Clinic remains one of Arizona’s premier academic contests for youth. Entering its 15th year, this stimulating contest allows fifth through eighth grade students the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of space technology. The Aerospace Challenge requires participants to develop plans for an International Lunar Base complete with a physical scale model. More than 800 students will participate in this contest in which they work in groups to achieve critical problem-solving, communication, team-building and decision-making skills. As a result, they will expand their knowledge in subject areas such as math, science, social studies, language and fine arts.
The preliminary round of competition takes place over a three-day period, with the top three teams each day advancing to the finals. Finalists will enjoy an exclusive opportunity to attend a presentation from NASA astronauts. The Aerospace Challenge winning team will earn an all expense paid VIP trip of a lifetime, and a special on-field appearance at the 44th Annual Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in January 2015.
