I am reaching out to inform you that submissions for the Genes in Space
competition are now open. This national science contest offers a
unique opportunity for students in grades 7 through 12 to design a DNA
experiment for space. Last year's winner, Anna-Sophia Boguraev, is
evaluating the impact of space travel on the human immune system. Her
experiment is scheduled for launch in early 2016! We invite your
students to explore the many opportunities and challenges of space
exploration. This free contest offers fantastic awards, including:
For five Finalists:
- Receive mentoring from Harvard and MIT PhD scientists to refine their
- Win travel awards to 2016 International Space Station R&D Conference
- in San Diego
- Be awarded miniPCR equipment for their schools
For National Winner:
- Attend Space Biology Camp at New England Biolabs
- Have their DNA experiment performed aboard the ISS!
- Be invited to witness rocket launch
Genes in Space is now in its second year and it is a partnership
between miniPCR, Boeing, Math for America, CASIS, and New England
Biolabs. The contest is free, and does not require equipment.
Proposals will be judged solely on their creative and scientific merit.
We welcome you to share this opportunity in your newsletter

Genes in Space description for Newsletter
Design and Launch your DNA Experiment to Space!
We invite students in grades 7 through 12 to design DNA experiments for
space. Become a space DNA pioneer and help solve real-life space
exploration opportunities and challenges. Five finalist teams will
receive mentoring from Harvard and MIT PhD scientists, present at the
2016 International Space Station R&D Conference, and receive miniPCR
DNA Discovery Systems for their education institutions. Winners will
attend Space Biology Camp at New England Biolabs and --- send their DNA
experiment to space! Submission deadline April 20th 2016.
Teachers - turn contest submissions into a class assignment
that's aligned with standards. www.genesinspace.org#GenesInSpace
