We invite students in grades 7 through 12 to design DNA experiments that address challenges in space exploration
Life on Earth has evolved under the effects of our gravity and the protection of our atmosphere. Manned space exploration opens up amazing new opportunities for life, and serious challenges too.
If you've ever wondered about how astronauts might survive a deep-space mission or how we might be able to use biology to transform new worlds, Genes in Space is for you! Choose your favorite topic and become a space biology pioneer:
- Test your hypothesis in the ultimate lab: The International Space Station
- Propose an experiment that utilizes molecular biology capabilities aboard the ISS, specifically polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
BECOME A SPACE DNA PIONEER!
