Challenge: PSA
Add the Micro to Gravity!

Classrooms are being challenged to design a way to test the Personal Satellite Assistant (PSA) on Earth to make sure that it will work once it is on the ISS where there is microgravity. During this process, students will explore the engineering design process, including a peer review for refining their designs. NASA engineers and scientists will be on hand to help to guide the process.

Registration is now in process!
