The Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Awards

This is a challenge for high school students (or the equivalent home school level) to design products using science and technology. The competition includes areas of competition in personal spaceflight, lunar exploration and renewable energy. To compete, teams develop their concept, submit a business plan, and become public Ambassadors for their ideas. Students get to compete for over $120,000 of prize money as well as the opportunities to connect with leading scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs. The awards create a long term community for students and teachers that provides the resources and opportunities needed to develop and incubate commercial products. The competition is just the beginning of this journey. For more information on the Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Awards go to: http://www.conradaward.com/. For official rules click here.
