Future Engineers Design Challenge


How can we, as future engineers, design a 3D model of an expandable item for astronauts to be printed on the International Space Station?

During this enrichment camp, K-12th grade learners will research the needs of astronauts on the ISS. Using their findings, they will design an expandable tool using a variety of 3D modeling programs. Winners have the chance to earn a trip to Vegas to The winner in each age group will win a trip to Las Vegas for a VIP tour of Bigelow Aerospace to learn about expandable spacecraft. Four finalists in each age group will win an inflatable tent for their family and others $50 gift cards for 3D printing. . www.techedmissions.com

Think Outside the Box Challenge

Alex-Valley Ranch Top 4 Finalist in the Nation

Alex attended Future Engineers Challenge this spring and finished Top 4 earning a tool printed on the International Space Station. He also interviewed with an elite panel, including astronauts and engineers. Om also finished Top 10. If you participated in the first challenge you are eligible to enter again and will be introduced to more sophisticated 3D modeling tools.
