ISS Research for Students on Earth: Thirteen microgravity experiments were designed and submitted by student teams from the St. Ursula Academy in Toledo, Ohio to NASA for fabrication and testing in the 2.1-second drop tower at Portland State University (PSU). Through the Capillary Effects on Liquids Exploratory Research Experiments (CELERE) program, high school students conduct their own research similar to that conducted on ISS by Mark Weislogel (PSU), who has partnered with NASA to offer this opportunity.
