Real-World/In-World Design Challenge

What is the RealWorld-InWorld NASA Engineering Design Challenge?  

This unique design challenge offers BOTH hands-on REALWORLD experiences  AND …Virtual INWORLD interactions.

High school students, working as design teams, solve REAL problems facing current NASA researchers.  Face-to-face, in the REAL WORLD, students learn what it takes to brainstorm, design, build, test, and share workable solutions.

Those interested in taking their ideas VIRTUAL, team-up with college students and engineers INWORLD.

Your team may spread across the country.

The barrier of distance is eliminated INWORLD.

And … INWORLD … you never know who you might meet when you “turn around.” NASA researchers will visit and “chat” INWORLD throughout the challenge.
You may contact Shelley D. Spears, Director of Outreach Development, at 757-325-6732, or shelley.spears@nianet.org for further information.
