St. Francis High School: In Search of Science Professionals to Assist with Genes in Space Competition

Published : Friday, March 2, 2018 | 3:20 PM

St. Francis High School is excited to announce that the St. Francis Golden Knights, led by Mr. Bill Heinen, will be participating in “out of this world” science through the Genes in Space Competition. This is a fantastic opportunity for students in its science program to make a real-world contribution to human space travel. St. Francis students will be designing a DNA experiment that addresses challenges in space travel and deep space exploration.

If you are a science professional and would like to volunteer to be part of an advisory board to help guide the student inquiry, SFHS would love to have you join the team! The biggest hurdle to getting started is generating questions about what biological issues might arise as humans start to colonize space. Please direct any questions or interest to Mr. Heinen via email to “We hope you will join us for this hands-on learning project!”
