That just about every student in Linda Canobbio's advanced physical-science class uses the word exciting to describe the journey before them is understandable.
Canobbio's eighth graders at Williamstown Middle School are the only class in New Jersey - and one of just over 30 in the nation - invited by NASA to work side by side with scientists on a project at the Mars Space Flight Facility at Arizona State University.
The invitation came as the result of an idea by Canobbio and the commitment by her 13- and 14-year-olds to study avalanches and physical forces in coordination with the program at Arizona State.
They are confident they will reach that goal, said Canobbio, who, like her husband and 14 parent-chaperones, is paying her own way.
Linda Canobbio bought the 40-pound bag of sand from Home Depot.The dirt - Jersey dirt, the class calls it - was from her backyard.The water, from school faucets, is squirted from a plastic ketchup bottle she bought at a dollar store.
"If NASA knew we were using a ketchup bottle, they'd laugh," Canobbio says.
How the class came upon this opportunity is a tribute to the tenacity of Canobbio, a teacher for more than 35 years, the last five at the middle school.
"Every year, I look for a hook," she said.Last year, her class followed a deep-sea exploration off California.
At a National Science Teachers Association convention, she talked to NASA about participating in a space project.She learned of the Arizona State program and decided "this is it."
But the first idea Canobbio and her class pursued in the fall - a study involving how light impacts Mars - was rejected because the sun and Mars would not be in good alignment when the class did its research.
"I was devastated," Canobbio said.
After attending a seminar at Arizona State, she came up with Plan B: the study of avalanches on the Red Planet.
"The kids have worked hard," she said."The parents have been wonderful."
