Advanced students at Hazelwood Middle School in Indiana worked with a former astronaut and the nonprofit Higher Orbits to design experiments, one of which was chosen to be launched to the International Space Station.

Students at a New Albany middle school have been given the opportunity to design a science experiment that will be sent into space.

This week, high-ability students at Hazelwood Middle School are participating in the multi-day Go For Launch! program. The experience was presented by Higher Orbits, a nonprofit focused on STEM education, and it included experts in the fields of STEM and space exploration, including Don Thomas, a former astronaut, and Michelle Lucas, founder and CEO of Higher Orbits.
