Engineering Education at NASA

On Saturday, October 19, 2019, our Engineering and Robotics Team visited the NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio to participate in the NASA Space App Challenge 2019. According to their website, “Now in its 8th year, Space Apps is an international hackathon for coders, scientists, designers, storytellers, makers, builders, technologists, and others in cities around the world, where teams engage with NASA’s free and open data to address real-world problems on Earth and in space. Space Apps 2019 included over 29,000 participants at more than 230 events in 80 countries. Space Apps is a NASA-led initiative organized in collaboration with Booz Allen Hamilton, Mindgrub and SecondMuse.” During the challenge our students worked diligently and were able to design a drone with a 3D printer that was controlled by Arduino. Due to their hard and innovative design, they received the “Best Use of Science” and the “Best Use of Hardware” awards! Overall, this was an awesome event and we are so proud of our students. Congratulations to Ryan, Morgan, Mustapha, Chloe and Benjamin and also a special thanks goes out to our Alumni student Jalicia!
