The NASA Student Involvement Program (NSIP) is a national program of six competitions for grades K-12 that link students directly with NASA’s exciting missions of exploration and discovery. Each NSIP competition category has a Resource Guide that provides instructional materials, a judging rubric, tips, and resources for using investigations and design challenges in your classroom. These materials support national standards, state frameworks, and local school curricula. NSIP is open to all students in grades K-12, though some prizes are awarded only to U.S. citizens and legal residents. Participating teachers and students win prizes–such as space camp scholarships, medals, and certificates–according to their competition category and grade level.
