The Scientist for a Day contest challenges students to become NASA scientists studying three moons of Uranus: Ariel, Oberon, and Titania. Participants examine and research these three moons and choose the one they think NASA should return to that would yield the best scientific results. Students write an essay under 300 words explaining their choice. Winning essays are posted online. Winners and their classes talk to NASA scientists.
