3 CMS teams sweep Watching Earth Change competition
Three teams of seventh-grade students from Canyon Middle swept the NASA Student Involvement Programs Watching Earth Change competition. NSIP allows students to choose their own research topic and explore how the Earth has or is changing.
First place went to a “Deforestation and its effects on life in the Philippines” project conducted by Carty Covington, jonathan Voltz and Myranda Bradley.
The team used research from the National Hood Observatory to show the increase in flood events in the Philippines due to deforestation.
“Our students had access to free NASA resources allowing them to experience true science and feel the victory of success,” says Stef Paramoure, the seventh-grade science teacher who coordinated the students’ participation.
Second place went to Bryan and Matthew Mittelstadt, Brian Massey and Hilary I toyer for a study on transforming contrails. They showed the connection between high altitude jet flying and the creation of upper atmosphere clouds that in turn increase global temperatures.
Third place went to a project on disappearing coral reefs conducted by Samantha Stinger, Shineese Martinez, Amy Fry and Ethan Pauling. They studied how human impact is affecting the health of the world s coral reefs.
I’aramoure says that as a result of tile first-place team being from Canyon Middle, the seventh-graders received a guest lecture from an aerospace engineer. Dr. Wallace Fowler, director of NASAs Texas Space Grant (Consortium, and an aerospace engineer at the University of Texas at Austin, shared his experiences at NASA with the students.
