NASA Environmentally Responsible Aviation Challenge

Posted on Monday, March 1, 2010 by for Extra Credit, Juniors, NASA, Seniors.

The Environmentally Responsible Aviation (ERA) project of the Integrated Systems Research Program, Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, has announced a new student contest. The Green Aviation Student Challenge invites students to propose ideas and designs for future aircraft that use less fuel, produce less harmful emissions and make less noise.

The contest spans a full calendar year, so students have multiple opportunities to enter. The deadline for the first round is May 1, 2010. The second round deadlines are in December 2010.

Students are asked to submit a well-documented paper and a short video to explain their ideas. The ERA project intends to reward top-scoring students by airing their videos on NASA Web sites, and students may win a trip to an aviation event. Top college students may also earn a paid internship at a NASA center.

For more information, visit the Aeronautics Research Directorate at NASA.
