Anacortes, WA – Two Groups of 5th grade students from Fidalgo Elementary in Anacortes have created projects that have made it to the final voting stage of the NASA Glogster Spin-Off competition.
To Participate in the Glogster Spin-Off competition, Students were asked to use their imagination and creativity to identify NASA Spinoff technology in their everyday world.
Items such as memory foam, invisible braces, firefighting equipment, artificial limbs, scratch-resistant lenses, aircraft anti-icing systems, shoe insoles, water filters/purification, cochlear implants, satellite television, and long-distance telecommunications were first developed for a NASA mission and then, re-worked to make everyday life easier.
To display their research and ideas, students used a combination of text, images and videos, to create a Glogster Multimedia Poster.

Students learned that once you start discovering NASA Spinoffs, there’s more space in their life than they thought.
If a Fidalgo Team wins, they will be representing the Anacortes School District in Washington, D.C.
Students ask the community to support them by voting on one of the two posters. Voting Ends on May 1st, 2017. Vote today!
