NASA wants students in grades five through eight to design a classroom experiment that can also be performed by astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

The “Kids in Micro-g” challenge calls for the experiments to examine the effect of weightlessness on various subjects: liquids, solids, the law of physics, and humans. According to the bulletin of the Triangle Coalition, an education advocacy group, the experiments will be performed on the orbiting laboratory next spring. Proposals are due Dec. 8, 2010.
