December 11, 2019 – Reston, Va. – Three high school students from the Seattle area will experience what most people only dream of—to have their experiment launched into space Wednesday at 12:55 p.m. EST as part of the Blue Origin New Shepherd payload.

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) sponsored Go For Launch! Seattle 2019 Full STEAM Ahead, a science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) education program created by nonprofit Higher Orbits, and held in January at The Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington. The Higher Orbits program gives high school students the opportunity to work with astronauts and scientists to develop STEM or STEAM projects that are launched to suborbital space or conducted on the International Space Station.
