Mouser Electronic’s 2016 ISS Design Challenge sponsored by Intel and Amphenol.
A useful research device? A handy tool? Something else entirely?
This is your chance to help astronauts aboard the International Space Station with a device that improves their jobs or daily life. We’ll be taking submissions all summer, and then our celebrity judges will decide whose design and concept will be beamed up to the ISS and 3D printed for astronauts to use and share with the world.
Launch Your 3D Design to Orbit 200 Miles Above Earth
Mouser has teamed up with Made In Space with their launch of the first Zero-G 3D printer to assist astronauts mission on the International Space Station.
You design it. We’ll 3D print it in space. Mouser is looking for an innovative design idea from college engineering students and engineers that can be used by astronauts 200 miles above Earth. Grant Imahara and former ISS Commander and astronaut, Chris Hadfield, are judges to determine which design makes it to space.
Due to the requirements of space travel, it’s mission critical you follow all the rules and guidelines when submitting your idea. Be sure to include the following in your zip file:
- Image of your design to be printed
- Schematic of the electrical for your design
- Bill of Materials & PCB fabrication files (STL files are not required, but a plus)
Also, explain your idea in 200 words or less, and how it can benefit the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
- All submissions must be made by midnight (CST) on 10/7/16
- All entry form fields must be completed, including the file upload, for official entry
