Chris Barreras, Payloads Engineer Responds:

To the Montgomery School cricket design team: Lilliana, Esmeralda, Erika, Claudia and Monica

Looks good!

I have not worked with crickets, however, interesting idea with the sponge. Use something that automatically fills the sponge with water.

If the air flow is too high, then will this stress the crickets, blowing them on the walls?

What is the basic material of the habitat?

What are the overall dimensions?

How are the crickets loaded in the habitat?

A basic idea to remember also is that condensation may build up in all the habitats which creates some problems. We have compensated for this in the RAHFs with a pump which separates water out of the air.
