Tonight, March 22, 2016, David Thibodaux STEM Academy will make history! In partnership with NanoRacks, the Quest Partnership for Excellence in Education, and Valley Christian High School, DTSMA high school and middle school students have developed a science experiment (it's the size of a stick of butter) that will test the effectiveness of antibiotics on E. Coli bacteria on the International Space Station for 30 days.

Want to watch the launch? It can be seen on NASA TV at 10 PM Central time. Students Paul Pryor, Nicholas Meadows, Shelly Barnaba, Alex Landry, Logan Guillory, Austin Hall, Gavin Randolph, Daylon Piper and Serenity Broussard, who have proven that they have what it takes and found themselves worthy to reach the stars. Their trust, tenacity, and relentless positive spirits are an inspiration! The team would like to thank their mentors Nick Pugh, Stacy Thibodeaux, Stephanie Vidrine, and everyone who assisted!

Congratulations to all who participated, and thanks for embracing and supporting science!
