U.S. Department of Energy's BioenergizeME Infographic Challenge

Registration opens soon for the U.S. Department of Energy's new BioenergizeME Infographic Challenge. This competition challenges teams of high school students to design an infographic that responds to one of four specific cross-curricular bioenergy topics.

Selected infographics will be promoted nationally on the challenge website and via social media. One team of students will be selected to present their infographic at the Bioenergy Technologies Office's annual conference in Washington, D.C.

Selected infographics will be promoted nationally on the challenge website and via social media. One team of students will be selected to present their infographic at the Bioenergy Technologies Office's annual conference in Washington, D.C.

To make the challenge easy and effective, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Library of Congress have provided a resource guide with steps for doing research, along with valuable links and references to help students learn about bioenergy topics. Participants also have access to rubrics and guides for creating infographics and designing social media campaigns. Students can participate in this interdisciplinary STEM-focused challenge through classroom learning or informal education programs.

Registration for student teams is open from Sept. 30, 2015 to Feb. 4, 2016, and teams have until March 4, 2016, to submit their infographics.

For more information, visit http://www.energy.gov/eere/bioenergy/infographic-challenge.

Teams compete for awards up to $9,000 in U.S. savings bonds.

Registration for student teams is open until Dec. 17, 2015. Teams have until Feb. 25, 2016, to submit their science project, commonly referred to as the Mission Folder -- the official write-up of their project. During this period, eCYBERMISSION provides a wealth of online resources for student teams and team advisors to assist with project completion. Included in available online resources are eCYBERMISSION CyberGuide Live Chats, which allow teams to ask questions about their projects virtually to volunteer STEM experts who answer in real-time.

Registration is also open to professionals who are interested in participating as volunteers -- Virtual Judges, Ambassadors, and/or CyberGuides -- to help build students' interest in STEM.

2016 CubeSat Launch Initiative Opportunity

NASA has opened the next round of its CubeSat Launch Initiative to engage the growing community of space enthusiasts that can contribute to NASA's space exploration goals.

The CubeSat Launch Initiative gives students, teachers and faculty a chance to get hands-on flight hardware development experience in the process of designing, building and operating small research satellites. The initiative also provides a low-cost pathway to space for research in the areas of science, exploration, technology development, education or operations consistent with NASA's Strategic Plan.

The initiative also provides a low-cost pathway to space for research in the areas of science, exploration, technology development, education or operations consistent with NASA's Strategic Plan.

Applicants must submit their proposals electronically by 4:30 p.m. EST, Nov. 24, 2015. NASA plans to select the payloads by Feb. 19, 2016, but selection does not guarantee a launch opportunity. Selected experiments will fly as auxiliary payloads on agency rocket launches or be deployed from the International Space Station beginning in 2016 and running through 2019. NASA does not provide funding for the development of the small satellites, and this opportunity is open only to U.S. nonprofit organizations and accredited educational organizations.

For additional information about this opportunity and NASA's CubeSat Launch Initiative, visit http://www.nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-opens-new-cubesat-opportunities-for-low-cost-space-exploration andhttp://www.nasa.gov/directorates/heo/home/CubeSats_initiative.html.

Questions about this opportunity should be directed to Jason Crusan at Jason.Crusan@nasa.gov.
