Ocean City Students Sending Science Experiment Into Space

first_imgOcean City High School sophomore Madison Morgan, left, and junior Abigail Craige prepare to package an experiment that astronauts will carry out on the International Space Station. (Photos Courtesy Ocean City School District) Three Ocean City High School students will conduct research this year on the International Space Station as part of the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) Mission 13.Juniors Abigail Craige and Alexia Schmidt and sophomore Madison Morgan are finalizing their protocols and assembling their materials in preparation for their experiment’s launch into space in spring or summer.Astronauts will then follow the students’ directions to help gather data about the effects of microgravity on the growth rates and sex ratios of brine shrimp.The students ultimately hope that their data analysis reveals how brine shrimp can serve as a sustainable food source for astronauts.“We developed this experiment to test a creative way to offer astronauts both an alternative food source and a method of recycling,” Abigail said in a press release.Abigail and Alexia initially put together the proposal for the experiment, building upon previous research findings and consulting with Ocean City High School teachers.After learning that their proposal topped nine other proposals from OCHS and five from Ocean City Intermediate School (OCIS) to represent the Ocean City School District in the SSEP Mission 13, they recruited Madison to help prep the experiment.Madison had submitted another strong proposal for studying how mother of pearl enhances bone growth in space.“We were impressed with the quality of the proposals from our Ocean City students,” said OC Life 21 advisors David Uhrich and Daniel Weaver, also both OCHS physics teachers.They helped advise the OCHS students through the proposal process.Abigail, Alexia and Madison received additional guidance from OCHS biology teacher Catherine Georges, as they worked in a short period from the time the proposal was selected to the time they needed to submit the final proposal for signoff by SSEP organizers. They continue to work in Georges’ lab to test their proposed experiment and how to best package it.“I am hands-off unless the students need my input,” said Georges. “They are conducting the experiment on the ground, seeing what does and doesn’t work, brainstorming what could go wrong, and then making necessary adjustments.”Georges continued, “The district has been supportive in helping to get them the supplies they need, and the return on that investment is immeasurable. These students are engaging in high-level research.”Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor said, “We are proud to offer this unique opportunity to our students, because it will help them develop new skills, explore possibilities for the future and gain a competitive advantage over their peers when they go to apply for college or a job.”She added, “We often tell them to reach for the stars and that the sky is the limit, but now that their work has reached outer space, we will need to rethink that. Our students’ success is truly limitless.”Ocean City Intermediate School student Colin Schweim’s patch depicts a rocket ship leaving a wave in its wake.The Ocean City School District (OCSD) is one of only two K-12 districts in New Jersey participating in the SSEP this year. OCSD had previously participated in SSEP Mission 6, with about 100 students involved in some aspect of the proposal writing and experiment design process.This year, OCSD increased student involvement by engaging high school students involved in the OC Life 21 club and eighth grade students in a “Science from Space” Virtual High School enrichment course.Ocean City Primary School (OCPS) students in grades kindergarten through third grade and OCIS students in grades fourth through eighth also had the opportunity to participate in the SSEP by designing a patch for the chosen OCSD experiment.Each school ran a contest to choose a winning design, and the district will send the two winning patches along with its experiment into space.The patch design winners from OCIS, who will showcase their individual designs on opposite sides of one patch, are Colin Schweim, who drew a rocket ship with a cloud of smoke behind it that resembles a wave, and Valentina Asenov, who drew OCSD’s mascot in a spacesuit.The team of Hanna Dolinsky and Delaney Kampmeyer created the winning design from OCPS, placing a photo of an astronaut on the Ocean City Boardwalk holding fries and ice cream.In addition, the third grade students designed and built their own LEGO space station, which required them to develop a budget, conduct research and plan for an optimal design that fit within set parameters before getting started.About the Student Spaceflight Experiments ProgramThe Student Spaceflight Experiments Program is a program of the 501c3 National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S. and the Arthur C. Clarke Institute for Space Education for communities internationally.It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory.last_img

Foreign foray

first_imgRecent statistics released by market development consultancy Food from Britain (FFB) show British bakery exports are booming, with sales of bread, biscuits and cakes increasing by nearly 7% over the January-September 2006 period, reaching £351 million. And with UK companies respected for their high-quality products, there has never been a better time to look to new markets overseas.”The UK baking industry is acknowledged as being among the most innovative in the world,” says Chris Brockman, research manager at FFB. “This reputation gives British companies an excellent advantage when it comes to developing a sales network in foreign countries. International markets differ considerably, with consumer tastes and trends varying from country to country. However, our extensive research can accurately pinpoint the various opportunities that exist for specific product types in individual markets.”The recent research has identified the biscuit market in the USA as a key growth area for British products, with exports to the country rising by more than 21% between 2004 and 2005. According to Pavel Kolarov, senior consultant at FFB North America, this is largely due to the excellent reputation of British products in this sector, partly fuelled by the large expatriate communities and a strong tourist market.”With the country as large as it is, it’s difficult to generalise trends and opportunities on a national level,” says Kolarov. “For instance, British biscuits are understandably more popular in areas with large expatriate communities, such as Florida and the East Coast, and California.”We have established, however, that there are certain types of biscuit that are proving increasingly popular with US consumers, leading to opportunities for British exporters.” For example, British premium chocolate-coated biscuits have always been well-received by the American public. However, as UK chocolate is very different and a lot richer than American chocolate, these products are seen as indulgent, luxury items, not mass-market products as they are in the UK.Growth in healthy snackingThe UK is now seeing increased consumer demand for healthy snacking and, according to Pavel, this trend is being echoed in the health-focused American snack market. Water crackers and crispbreads are proving popular, with British companies such as Carr’s and Jacob’s establishing themselves in the US market as the demand for low-fat and ’free-from’ alternatives increases, opening up new opportunities for British firms.”Although numerous American companies are producing low-fat biscuits, there will always be room for British alternatives on supermarket shelves,” says Kolarov. However, where British manufacturers have the real edge is in the production of snack products for allergy sufferers. Whereas the UK market has been quick to pick up on this potentially huge sector, American producers have been slow to react. British expertise in this area is widely respected, with American consumers now coveting the choice and quality of products enjoyed by their British counterparts.”Gluten-free items are especially sought after, and I would urge any British companies manufacturing these products to seriously look into taking advantage of this opportunity.”According to FFB’s Nordic office, opportunities exist for British bakery companies closer to home, too, with exports of breads, pastries and cakes to Denmark increasing by an impressive 17.7% between 2005 and 2006, reaching a value of £9.4m.Jakob True, director of FFB Nordic, believes this increase can be partly attributed to the growth in popularity of in-store bakeries in large supermarkets and hypermarkets. “Many more large food stores in the region are following the British trend of having in-store bakeries,” he says. “This has created a huge opportunity for British own-label companies who can now supply ready-to-bake products.”In-store bakeries are proving very profitable for the supermarkets, as they provide a good image and an enticing aroma and Danish firms are looking to capitalise on British expertise in this sector.”opportunities for Own-label breadSpeciality bread from Britain is also highly regarded in Denmark and across the Nordic region. UK producers are seen as being at the forefront of this product segment, whereas many speciality products, especially of ethnic origin, are relatively new to Nordic consumers.”The introduction of speciality breads into Nordic markets has been tremendously popular,” says True. “Nordic stores have been, and still are, looking to British companies to help develop this new segment in the market, and many producers are taking advantage of that opportunity.”Honeytop Speciality Foods is one such company. The firm, which was recently named ’Cereals Exporter of the Year’ at the annual Food from Britain Export Awards, exports naan breads to several countries across Europe, with Denmark and the wider Nordic region representing more than 40% of its total export sales.After researching the market, the company identified own-label as the best way to get its naan breads to market and, in 2005, it was awarded a contract to supply supermarkets Bilka, Føtex, and Netto, all part of the Dansk Supermarked group.”Supplying Dansk Supermarked stores has given a tremendous boost to our export business,” says Pauline Ball, business development controller for Europe at Honeytop. Multilingual packaging had to be developed and a suitable display carton had to be designed to suit the stores’ automated warehousing and on-shelf display requirements. Recipe changes had to be made, due to legislative requirements, but some changes were also made to the flavour profile to suit Danish consumers’ tastes.”It has been a very successful exercise that has now led to us expanding into other Nordic markets, including Finland, where we have now secured a listing in Kesko, the largest retail store in the country.” n?
