Spotsylvania Middle School Students Participate in Cubes in Space

By Susan Larson

Two Spotsylvania County middle school students were at Wallops Island this summer to witness the launch of their science project as part of idoodlelearning’s Cubes in Space program.

Post Oak Middle School rising 7th graders Emma Laslie and Kaitlyn Bowling designed an experiment to determine the effects of zero gravity on three different forms of glue. Theirs was one of 80 projects selected world-wide for the 2015 Cubes in Space launch June 25, at the NASA Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The girls brought their cube back to Post Oak to open and see the results. “All three glue types held strong while in space,” said teacher Mrs. Adkins. She plans to have students participate again in 2016.

Cubes in Space by idoodlelearning is a no-cost STEM-based program for students age 11 – 14 to design and complete to launch an experiment into space.
