  • Congratulations to Carter Middle School!

    After a rigorous experiment design challenge, showcase of the 25 proposals created by 19 Knox County Schools, and judging of the finalists at Carter Middle, Hardin Valley Elementary, and Farragut High by scientists at the Smithsonian, Carter Middle's experiment design entitled "The Effect of Microgravity on Tooth Decay" was chosen to fly to the International Space Station this spring courtesy of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP).  The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program is a national science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program. It is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science in the U.S. and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory.  Congratulations Mrs. Whipple and the future Drs. Barnes, Harrell, Morton, Purkey, and Smith!
