ECISD announced that a few Nimitz students who designed a science experiment will have their project sent to space.

According to NewsWest 9, the students were placed in a competition and were one of three finalists in the Ector County school district.

The competition was the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program and three schools within ECISD had their experiments become a part of the finalists.

The schools were Nimitz, O.C.T.E.C.H.S., and Falcon Early College High School.

All three schools will have their experiments conducted aboard the International Space Station by an astronaut next summer.
