May 14, 2010-Winning High-Tech Teens

NASA and USA Today announced in May the winners of the 2010 No Boundaries National Competition for students across the country that excel in science, technology, engineering and math. Students worked in groups to develop a project that markets careers at NASA to teens. The 2010 winning entry was “Let’s Get Materialistic” by the team of Kristine Baltazar, Elka Chowdhury, Jenna DeRito and Neil Montwani from Saddle Brook Middle School, who focused on materials engineering in their career portfolio. USA Today will present the winners with a $2,000 cash prize and NASA will give them a VIP guest tour of the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.
