Spaceflight Winner Announced

Edina Public Schools is proud to announce our Student Spaceflight Experiments Program winner! Congratulations to EHS seniors Josh Cram and Colin Shaw, along with sophomore Grayson Irons.

After nine weeks of research, experiment design, and proposal writing, a national panel of experts selected one proposal to be on board an outgoing SpaceX spacecraft. This microgravity experiment is destined for the International Space Station, where astronauts complete the experiment in space and return the results back to Edina students.

The team created a project centered around growing food in space. In the summer of 2023, this microgravity experiment will take off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center aboard a Falcon 9 rocket. "I never would’ve guessed that I’d create an experiment that would go to space, much less in my senior year of high school," Josh told FOX 9 on Monday. "We’re growing a plant in space. I mean, how many high schoolers can say that they’ve done that?" Grayson added.
