Participating Scientists and Engineers for the Year Two Challenge, which launched October 1, 2009 include:

Bio-Designs – The winning student will work with Christopher Viney, Professor, Engineering, UC Merced and engineers at the University of Maryland to explore a problem using the world of nature as a springboard for new ideas.

Imagining Sports on Mars - Working with engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, a budding engineer will come up with a game suitable for playing on the mysterious Red Planet.

Detective Science - Students will work with forensic and environmental scientists at Syracuse University to use the science of detection to solve a real life mystery.
