YouTube SpaceLab Open Competition
|Scholarship / Financial aid: out-of-this-world prizes|
Deadline: 7 December 2011
Open to: individuals who are between the ages 14 - 18 years
We're asking you to come up with a science experiment for space and upload a video explaining it to YouTube. If your idea wins, it will be performed on the International Space Station and live streamed on YouTube to the world. And we'll throw in some out-of-this-world prizes, too.
Can plants survive beyond the Earth? Could proteins in space reveal the mysteries of life? Science in micro gravity can help unlock the answers. The countdown's begun.
The big idea
YouTube SpaceLab is an open competition inviting 14 - 18 year olds to come up with an idea for a science experiment for space. You don't have to actually do the experiment, you just have to record yourself explaining it.
Aiming high with prizes
The winning ideas will be conducted on the International Space Station (ISS) and beamed live on YouTube for the whole planet to see.
Go it alone or build a team
You can enter as a team of two or three so maybe get together with a couple of friends and come up with an idea to submit together. Or fly solo and enter on your own.
