We’re excited to announce that NASA Goddard’s OPSPARC Program is live!
Students are asked to use their imagination and creativity to identify NASA #Spinoff technology in their everyday world. Items such as memory foam, invisible braces, firefighting equipment, artificial limbs, scratch-resistant lenses, aircraft anti-icing systems, shoe insoles, water filters/purification, cochlear implants, satellite television, and long-distance telecommunications were first developed for a NASA mission and then, re-worked to make everyday life easier.
Once you start discovering Spinoffs, you will be surprised to find that there’s more space in your life than you think.
To display their research and ideas, students will use a combination of text, images and videos, to create a #Glogster Multimedia Poster. This poster will be submitted and the student ideas will be shared with NASA.
This challenge is broken down into three age brackets based on grade levels:
3rd – 6th
7th-12th (InWorld where students will work with college mentors)
