has been a popular topic this week, especially since
billionaire investors announced they were embarking on an ambitious goal
of mining the natural resources found on asteroids.
This is nothing new for Girlstart participants, who engineered their own
asteroid landers last month during our Girls In STEM Conference, in collaboration with the NASA Human Health & Performance Center
During Girlstart's annual Girls In STEM Conference the girls were
challenged with the 1st All-Girl Mission to create a vehicle to land and
collect minerals on an asteroid. Using the materials included in their
bags they were to build a vehicle that could grab onto the asteroid’s
surface and attach an object that could collect minerals from the
asteroid. Check out all the creative and unique asteroid landers the
girls made! Click HERE
