Student Spaceflights Experiments Program to Mission 12
Once again WNY STEM is exploring the final frontier with the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP), the first pre-college STEM education program that is both a U.S. national initiative and an on-orbit commercial space venture.
Mission 12 investigators are from:
- Dr. Charles R. Drew Magnet School, Buffalo
- Futures Preparatory Academy
- Research Laboratory Program for Bioinformatics and Life Sciences at Bennett High School
- Hamlin Park Claude and Ouida Clapp Academy, Buffalo
- Southside Elementary School, Buffalo
- King Urban Life Center, Buffalo
- Metro CDC Delavan Grider Community Center, Buffalo
- Global Concepts Charter School, Lackawanna
- Harry F. Abate Elementary, Niagara Falls
- Tonawanda Middle School
- Olean High School
- Lockport High School
- Wellsville Middle School
Over the next several months, students will research and write authentic experiments to be reviewed by a local panel of experts who will select an experiment for further review by SSEP’s panel.
