YouTube SpaceLab Competition

YouTube Space Lab is a global competition that challenges 14-18 year old students to design a science experiment that can be performed in space by NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
 Space Lab is a unique partnership between YouTube, Lenovo, and Space Adventures in cooperation with NASA, ESA, JAXA, and other space agencies and institutions around the world to inspire and educate a new generation of students about science and space exploration.
The winning experiments will be sent 250 miles into space and conducted aboard the International Space Station (ISS), making this the universe’s largest science lesson streamed live for the world to see via YouTube in the summer of 2012.
The top 2 winning global teams will have to choice to receive an amazing custom astronaut training experience in Russia, giving them the chance to be the youngest person ever to receive spaceflight training, when they turn 18, or they can take a trip to Japan to watch their experiment blast off into space.
The 6 winning regional teams will be invited to the winners’ event in Washington, DC, USA, awarded a Lenovo IdeaPad, and taken on a ZERO-G flight to experience the wonder of weightlessness.
A prestigious panel of scientists, astronauts, and educators—including Professor Stephen Hawking—will judge the entries with input from the YouTube community.
