  • Engineering Design Process

    Scientist inspecting thermal blanketNASA’s BEST- Engineering Design Process Video Series:

    The engineering design process is a series of steps that engineers use to guide them as they solve problems. Engineers must ask a question, imagine a solution, plan a design, create that model, experiment and test that model, then take time to improve the original – all steps that are crucial to mission success at NASA.

  • NASA Langley Research Center Technologies

    NASA Langley Research Center’s 100th Anniversary:

    Innovative and leading edge technology is developed at all NASA centers. In celebration of NASA Langley Research Center’s (LaRC) 100th Anniversary, 3-5 and 6-8 grade students may consider using a LaRC technology to inspire their OPSPARC spinoffs. Several of the many LaRC technologies are pictured here.

  • Servicing Talisman

    Robotic Arm (TALISMAN):

    The in-space robotic arm, also referred to by the acronym TALISMAN, can be used to grasp and manipulate objects, such as satellites or boulders on asteroids.

    This slippery, glue-like substance, known also as the Hydrophobic Epoxy Coating for Insect Adhesion Mitigation, was developed by NASA Langley to prevent insect residue from adhering to airplane wings, which improves aerodynamic efficiency.
