In the fall of 2006, NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate announced a new high school competition for the academic year. As part of NASA’s mission to inspire the next generation of engineers, scientists, and explorers, the contest invited students to think about how air and space travel may change over the next 50 years. In this international competition, Midwood was the only school with two winning teams. This accomplishment was recorded in the Weekly Activity Report at NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center (the official history of NASA events in the northeastern US).
