    High-Tech Productions has agreed to underwrite some of the costs associated with getting a school science project placed aboard a NASA Space Shuttle flight.

   An experiment several classes at Pembroke Pines Charter Middle School are working on has been approved to be on board the NASA shuttle Columbia, scheduled for liftoff in early 2003. It will compare crystal growth in microgravity to that on Earth.

    The experiment will take the students where no school has gone before. Although two similar space experiments have been conducted under the supervision of one of the schools science teachers Barry Perlman. This one uses different combinations of chemicals and will be in space longer. Scientists speculate such research one day could revolutionize the pharmaceutical industry by helping to grow purer drugs in space at a faster rate. But the teacher simply hopes it will inspire in his students a lifelong love of science. Perlman organized his first crystal experiment in 1992 while he was director of a Miami-Dade County planetarium and the second six years ago with a single class at New River Middle School in Fort Lauderdale.

    Several classes of seventh-graders will be directly involved with the NASA experiment, organizing the materials, conducting control experiments in their classrooms, comparing the results after the flight and forming conclusions.
