Be The First to Set Foot on the Red Planet!
To Celebrate 20 years of successful missions, The Challenger Learning Center of Kentucky is launching a brand new mission for the 2020-2021 School year, Expedition Mars!

This will be a multi-part contest open to all middle school students (grades6-8) in Eastern Kentucky. To find out more about how to win and what you’ll be competing for, please continue reading!

How to Compete:
For this contest, we are asking for two things:

Patch (with Explanation)
All official NASA missions also include a mission patch, so we ask that each team submit a patch following our guidelines along with a 500-word maximum explanation on how they designed it.
