The JETS (Junior Engineering Technical Society) Club at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood are 'over the moon' about their nationwide contest win. NASA challenged students to think about what a human presence on the moon might look like and to develop a two dimensional drawing or three dimensional model.

Clear Brook students Sami Khaleeq, Kenny Lam, Brian Lemke, Karl Schaefer, and Mason Tang worked for several weeks on their design, and used software from the Project Lead the Way laboratory to create a 3D model. Their entry won first place in the 3D category, and earned $750 for the JETS.

Sami Khleeq attended the 40th Anniversary of the Lunar Landing in Washington D.C. in July and accepted the cash award. He also met Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon and Charles Bolden, the Chief Administrator of NASA.
