  • Challenge

    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.

  • Students in Grades 3-6

    Students will test their skills by changing an everyday object into something that will make the world a better place.

     

     

  • Students in Grades 7-12 (Glog Track)

    Students will expand their understanding of NASA Spinoff technology by developing their own Spinoff ideas.

     

     

  • Students in Grades 7-12 (Glog + InWorld Track)

    Students will work with college mentors and will focus on the James Webb Space Telescope technology for their Spinoff ideas. They will take their spinoff one step further creating models and visual representations of their Spinoff ideas within a 3D, multi-user virtual world environment.
