The winning student’s design will be 3D printed on the International Space Station, making it one of the first parts in history to be manufactured in space!

Future Engineers (FutureEngineers.org) is a K-12 program that will challenge young designers to create 3D models for space. NASA and Made In Space are launching the first-ever Zero-G 3D printer to space this year. To celebrate the launch of this exciting ‘In Space Manufacturing’ revolution, NASA and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Foundation are partnering together to develop a series of 3D design challenges and curriculum exclusively for students. Starting this summer/fall, the Future Engineers team is happy to announce that Houston will have a problem, because NASA and the ASME Foundation are excited to see how our nation’s students will solve real-world space exploration challenges. The winning student’s design will be 3D printed using the Made In Space printer on the International Space Station, making it one of the first parts in history to be manufactured in space. The Future Engineers website will have everything students need to get inspired and educated about 3D design. So whether you’re a parent, an educator, or a budding student designer, stay connected by signing up for our mailing list today. The first challenge launches soon!
