Congratulations to Ridge View High School Scholars Academy Magnet for Business and Law sophomore Jada Broome, who was recently named a semi-finalist in NASA’s Name the Mars Rover contest.
NASA will launch their latest mission of exploration in July 2020, and offered students K-12 the chance to choose a name and explain why it was fitting. From thousands of entries, Broome’s entry was awarded this designation as she chose the name Amica, which means friend in Latin, because of the potential life-sustaining relationship Mars may offer us. The next round of judging will be announced later this month.
Scholars Academy Magnet Director Nicole Walker said, “We are so proud of Jada. This is a unique opportunity to be part of American history. We are thankful to NASA for providing this interdisciplinary chance for students to explore space and culture to create something meaningful for all Americans.”
