STEM on Station -- Mathematics

'Science, technology and engineering all involve some degree of mathematics. This is true regarding the International Space Station and its microgravity environment. The orbit of the space station, the amount of storage space on the station, and the scale modeling used to design station components all engage mathematical concepts. See how mathematics applies to the science and engineering projects related to the space station.'
