This month we recognize 6th grader Reece Steidle from Mount Nittany Middle School in State College, PA, for his winning entry in the NASA Cassini Scientist for a Day contest for 2016-2017. The Cassini Scientist for a Day contest challenges students to become NASA scientists studying Saturn. Participants examine three possible observations taken by the Cassini spacecraft and are tasked to choose the one they think will yield the best scientific results. This choice must then be supported in essay. Reece is one of three U.S. winners for grades 5 & 6, and his winning essay is available online.
Congratulations, Reece - you clearly are a PAESTAR!
