About Engineering Design Challenge: Spacecraft Safety by NASA
Using the engineering design process, students will design and build a model of a spacecraft that can safely transport two astronauts on a mission to the Moon, Mars, or other destinations in space. A drop test will determine how well the spacecraft will protect the astronauts during landing. During the drop test, the model spacecraft will be deployed, or dropped, from a height of at least two meters to simulate landing. The astronauts must stay securely in their seats during the drop test. The spacecraft must also have an internal tank for fuel.
6th-8th grade students (limited to first 16 registrants)
