Optical Communications STEM Challenge Team Photo

Students were selected to participate in a NASA science, technology, engineering, art and math challenge. Students worked on cross-functional teams to create an outreach activity using innovative technologies to engage middle school students in learning about optical communications.

As a prize, the students transmitted their photos to the International Space Station through the Amateur Radio on the International Space Station program.
