2017–2018 Student Presentations

Students participating in the Exploration of the Moon and Asteroids by Secondary Students (ExMASS) program experience multiple steps of the scientific process. The ability to communicate is essential to the process of science. All students give two presentations during their ExMASS experience — Moon/Asteroid 101 and a poster showcasing the results of their research. After posters are judged by a panel of scientists, the top four teams are given an opportunity to present their research to this panel and take questions from the judges.

Moon/Asteroid 101

During the first six weeks of their research experience, students familiarize themselves with lunar or asteroid science and exploration. Students read articles and answer guiding questions to build a foundation of lunar or asteroid science. After finishing the readings, student teams apply their new knowledge to a presentation in which they characterize the geology seen in three images of the lunar surface or three images of asteroids.
