Four Kiruna space students have reached final selection in a national young scientists competition.

 To support young students within space educations is an important element to ensure recruitment within the business in the future. Therefore it is extra gratifying to support and write about four very successful young women at the Space High School in Kiruna, who have reached as far as to the final selection in a national competition among young scientists.

These young students have built an experiment to study the crystallization process of an organic salt (sodium acetate - HotIce). The experiment was flown onboard a CanSat launched by a small rockets. Read more about thier project here.

The award (scholarship) is initiated by the Swedish Federation of Young Scientists and is financed by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science. The award leads to interesting international study journeys within science and will be handed out by Fredrik Reinfeldt, the Swedish Prime Minister. We wish our young students good luck on 7 April when the winners are selected at a ceremony at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm.
