Harmony Science Academy – Houston High engaged their entire class of sophomores and juniors in a research design and proposal writing program this past spring semester. Roughly 300 students generated more than 60 projects and submitted to the first phase of review, where the review board had the tough task to only choose three proposals that would be submitted to National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) for final selection. Team Squid Legs consisting of Matt V, Ben A, Bassam R, Richard G, and Isaiah O, from Harmony Science Academy – Houston High created an elaborate research proposal to investigate planarian regeneration in a microgravity environment. Our students have traveled to Washington, DC earlier this month to present their research proposal at the national Smithsonian Museum. While in DC, the team was given the opportunity to listen to Dr. Jeff Goldstein, Center Director, SSEP National Program Director, and Dr. Don Thomas, a NASA Astronaut speak on the importance of learning more about space. Our team is one of only 10 teams chosen to fly their experiments to the International Space Station (ISS) across U.S. and Canada. Harmony students will also be traveling to Space X launch facilities in Florida to observe the launch of the spacecraft that will carry their experiments to ISS in February 2017. Harmony Science Academy students and administrators would like to thank their Geometry teacher Michael Bowling and Calculus teacher Gercek Boz for initiating this research program at their school. This is also an inspiring story of how two math teachers can empower their students to engage in such deep level space science and microbiology research. Although initiated by math department, the research program is supported by the school’s science, language arts, and humanities departments, as well as some community partnerships. We would like to again thank NCESSE national partners, Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), Subaru of America, Google, and Texas Space Grant Consortium for helping our students make this dream a reality.
