MVAO students are invited to participate in NASA competition Mapleton Press

A few MVAO high school students, led by Mrs. Cox, will have a unique opportunity this spring. Jim Christiansen, of Western Hills AEA 12, has been working with NASA and the Johnson Space Center for the past few years to give Iowa students the opportunity to compete in an industry simulation contest called the Mars Settlement Design Competition. This competition allows the students to work with students from Texas in designing a settlement plan for Mars.
