The STEM-X Launch Prize is a virtual mission for 12-18 year olds that is out of this world—literally!  

With help from NASA astronauts and space scientists, you’ll design an experiment that could launch on a SpaceX Rocket to the International Space Station (ISS).  

ISSET will fly the winning team or individual to Florida to build their experiment at the NASA Kennedy Space Center. You’ll watch it launch on a SpaceX Rocket to the International Space Station — LIVE. Astronauts onboard will then conduct your experiment and send the results back down to Earth. 

You can enter as an individual or in a team of up to three people.
