At edge hill creative writing lecturer, we are proud to represent an automaker that sees no boundaries for its drivers. Case in point, Subaru of America recently announced the extension of its support for the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP).

Through the two-year partnership with the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE), based in Washington, D.C., the automaker will donate $50,000 in order to support schools throughout the country that require funding before they may participate in the phenomenal education initiative.

Communities participating in SSEP launch a local Flight Experiment Design Competition that invites student teams to compete for the opportunity to fly in low Earth orbit in a research mini-laboratory. Student teams follow in the footsteps of professional researchers, submitting formal research proposals that enter a two-step review process to determine the community’s flight experiment. The challenging program runs for a minimum of nine weeks.

The Subaru brand has supported the organization as a national partner for the last two years, assisting nine schools in SSEP participation, including middle schools in Downingtown, Pa.; Pennsauken, N.J.; Oakland, Calif.; Highlands Ranch, Colo.; Chicago, Ill.; San Marino Calif.; and Rockwall, Texas. As a result, more than 3,000 students have engaged in the program and nearly 750 student team proposals have been submitted.

Launched in 2010 by the NCESSE, the SSEP comprises a partnership with NanoRacks, LLC. The national Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education initiative typically welcomes more than 300 students from across a community to develop, propose and execute true experiments to fly in low Earth orbit. That experiment begins on board the Space Shuttle and continues on the International Space Station.
