Who names NASA’s Mars rovers?

When NASA engineers need a name for a robotic Mars “rover,” they know where to find creativity. They turn to America’s young people.

More than 28,000 students — from kindergarten through 12th grade — submitted names for the rover that landed on Mars last month. It was Alex Mather, a Virginia seventh-grader, who won the contest with his suggestion, “Perseverance.”

STEM STARS GREECE: Looking for Greek Science Stars

The U.S. Embassy in Athens and the Greek nonprofit organization SciCo, are pleased to announce STEM STARS GREECE, a competition that supports, highlights, and rewards 14 to 18-year-old students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The top finishers will represent Greece at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), the world’s largest international science competition, which will take place virtually in May 2021.  STEM STARS GREECE is being held under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs and is sponsored by Microsoft Hellas.

The competition offers participants the opportunity to dive into specific areas of interest in STEM; develop research, collaboration, presentation and communication skills; present their findings to an audience; network with people who have common research interests, including scientists and STEM professionals; and win valuable prizes.

The STEM STARS GREECE competition is one of the bilateral "people to people” priorities discussed during the U.S.-Greece Strategic Dialogue process in 2020. This year’s contest is also one in a series of initiatives supported by the U.S. Embassy in Athens in 2021 that will commemorate 200 years of friendship between Greece and the United States of America.
