LIMA Challenge
Spring 2008 NASA Quest Challenge!

Sending Materials for the Website

The following is intended to help you in submitting your materials for posting to the LIMA Challenge website. Please note:

Submissions should include:

  • The name and/or description of your chosen ice feature
  • An image of your chosen ice feature
  • The location of your selected feature in terms of its longitude and latitude as well as the regoin of Antarctica in which it exists. (Teams are encouraged to include a map of Antarctica with a mark pinpointing the location of their selected feature.)
  • A paragraph explaining why your chosen ice feature is scientifically interesting.
  • A paragraph hypothesizing what geologic processes you think are occurring to create this ice feature.
  • A paragraph asserting why you and your team should be funded to further investigate this area of Antarctica. (In other words, what are the potential benefits of exploring this feature?)
  • Final Design Only: photo(s) of design in use -- capturing impact is a plus!

To send it in:

Send it in the body of an email message to:
Be sure to reference the LIMA Quest Challenge in your email subject.

For pictures or diagrams:

It is always our hope that material that comes from the classroom can be graphically represented on the web. There are several choices:

  • If it already exists in electronic form, you can attach the pictures in an email to,
  • We can FTP it from a location you specify -- send email to same address, or
  • If it is already on a Web page, we can simply point to it. Send the URL in an email

Please note: If any photo includes a student, we require parental permission to post it on the web. The permission should include parent contact information and their willingness for their student to appear on a NASA website. A form is available in .pdf format. We need to receive the form with the original signatures, sent to:

Linda B. Conrad
NASA Ames Research Center
M/C 226-4
Moffett Field, CA 94035

We would very much like to feature the work of your students on our NASA site. But we can only display your work if you send it.... so please share!
