May 12, 2015: NASA Challenges K-12 students to create a model of a container for space using 3D modeling software. Astronauts need containers of all kinds—from advanced containers that can study fruit flies to simple containers that collect Mars rocks or store an astronaut’s food. The ability to 3D print containers in space—on demand—will let humans venture farther into space. That's why we are challenging students to start designing for space now. It could be a container designed for zero-gravity on the International Space Station, or a container designed for future astronauts on Mars or beyond! Space is a big place, but your imagination is even bigger. Multiple prizes, based on age-groups, are available. Good luck!
