Future Engineers: 3-D Space Container Challenge

Houston, we have a design!

Congratulations to the Engineer Your Passion STEM Camp participants who successfully designed and submitted 3-D container designs to serve the needs of astronauts living at the International Space Station!

Thank you to Dr. Joseph Ayoob for the ideas on the fruit fly olfactory experiment.  The device allows for the observation of whether fruit flies can detect a particular scent in space and travel toward it.

On September 21st, NASA launched the first-ever Zero-G 3D Printer (built by Made In Space) to the International Space Station aboard Space X-4. To celebrate the launch of this ‘In Space Manufacturing’ revolution, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Foundation and NASA partnered together to develop a series of 3D Space Challenges focused on solving real world space exploration problems. Students can submit 3D models directly to the site for a chance to win prizes!
