Questions marked with an * are required Exit Survey
Thank you for being pioneers with the CASIS National Design Challenge!

Please complete this short survey to tell us about your experience and what you learned. There are NO right answers, and no one will see your answers except our evaluator, Dr. HIlarie Davis. She will report the results without your names to help us improve the program.


First, tell us a little about yourself

* Enter a code for yourself with no spaces - your shoe size followed by the year you were born followed by the first and last letters of your last name. Be sure to get your code right so you can use it all during this school year.
* Are you a ....
Male Female
* What grade are you in this year?
* What is your Race?
American Indian or Alaska Native
Black or African American
Hispanic or Latino
Native Hawiian or other Pacific Islander
* What is your teacher's name for the CASIS project?

Now tell us about what are you interested in.

How much did you like to do each of the following before the CASIS project and how much do you like doing them now? Use a scale of 1-10 = highest
Before After
* Build things
* Design things
* Take things apart
* Do science experiments
* Ask questions
* Hear about space research
* Learn about research here on Earth
When you think about the future, how interested were you in each of the career options below before CASIS? How interested are you now? Use a 1-10 scale with 10=highest
Before After
* Something in Science
* A career related to space
* Being an engineer
* A career where you can figure things out with math
* Some career that uses technology to learn new things
* A career that lets me do research to discover or prove things
* What did you find most interesting about the CASIS project?
* How would you make it better for other students in the future?
* What would you say to another student who was considering doing a project like this?
* Would you recommend the CASIS project to another students?
Rate your understanding of each topic before and after the CASIS National Design Challenge pilot on a scale of 1-10, 1=no understanding at all, 10=excellent understanding
Before After
* Microgravity
* Research on the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory
* The uniqueness of the microgravity research environment on the International Space Station
* Arduino
* Why universities and businesses want to do research on the ISS
* Possible careers in research
* Possible careers related to space
* How science, engineering, and math are used in careers
* How work as a team to meet a design challenge

Next, answer these questions to show us how much you have learned.

* The sponsor for your research is CASIS, which stands for the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space? What is CASIS? Choose the best answer.
1. Group that runs the International Space Station (ISS)
2. Company that manages the non-NASA research on the ISS National Lab
3. Organization that provides information on the ISS
4. NASA’s ISS National Lab group
* Why is there a U.S. National Laboratory on the International Space Station? Choose the best answer.
1. To send tourists there
2. Provides a special environment for doing research that can improve life on Earth
3. Makes it okay for other countries to use it now
4. Helps the astronauts have something to do since the space station is all built
* Gravity is a ________________ of attraction between all objects.
a. Force
b. Limitation
c. Change
d. Difference
The International Space Station has
a. Same gravity as Earth
b. Same gravity as the Moon
c. Microgravity
d. More gravity as Mars
* When you think about doing research, what comes to mind?
* Why do people want to do research in microgravity?
* How does the Ardulab help people do research in microgravity?
* How would you find out more about research in space? What websites or other resources would you use?
