Keenan High School sophomores Tevin Glover, Parker Matthews and Cedric McQueen devised a never-done-before experiment that is on this delivery. The experiment will test how microgravity, or the condition of apparent weightlessness, affects the mixing of starch and water.
Or, in science-speak, it’s called “The Effects of Microgravity on the Turbidity of a Non-Newtonian Fluid Mixture of Cornstarch and Water.” Got it?
Last year, it was one of 21 student experiments chosen to be tested as part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program.
Dozens of interactive exhibits highlight the college's academic programs and research including: Fuel cell demonstrations, Electric and hybrid vehicles, a concrete canoe, a cornstarch pool, robots, computer games, bottle rockets, Segway rides and hands-on projects for kids.
