Luzerne Intermediate Unit 18 is holding its annual Project Endeavour Enrichment Program. Fifteen teams of eighth-grade students, representing seven districts and two parochial schools, participated in the ‘Mission to Mars' competition. More than 100 students participated. The challenge required the teams to design a spacecraft and crew exploration vehicle for travel to Mars and a description of a landing site. They presented their proposal for judging to NASA officials via teleconference. The winners were Hanover Area, first place; Lake-Lehman, second place; and Hazleton Area, third place.
