AUSTIN (KXAN) — Several high school and college freshmen are competing for the unique opportunity to have their work sent to the International Space Station.

“Go-For-Launch!” is a the three-day camp taking place at St. Edward’s University this week for students interested in science, technology, engineering and math. Students get to spend time with a former astronaut and other mentors, designing an experiment that will be judged, compete with other “Go for Launch” events around the country and ultimately have their experiment conducted on the International Space Station.
