It's a bird! ... It's a plane! ... It's a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) project by Ana Reveles Leon '24 launching into space!
Ana, the 2020 Debbie Robson Merit Scholarship recipient, was one of 80 middle/high school students whose projects were flown as part of the Cubes In Space program in summer 2022. The program provides students access to space to design and test experiments on NASA missions. Launched aboard a two-stage Terrier-Improved Orion rocket, the student experiments flew to an altitude of nearly 70.5 miles. After descending by parachute and landing in the Atlantic Ocean, the experiments were recovered. The experiments will be returned to the students to see how their experiments performed. Congratulations, Ana. You're out of this world!
