Calling all Starfleet cadets! Star Trek and NASA want you to engineer the future of food in space. If you are a K-12 student in the United States, your challenge is to create a digital 3D model of a non-edible, food-related item for astronauts to 3D print in the year 2050. We want students to 'boldy go where no one has gone before' with 3D printing, by making designs that help astronauts eat nutritious meals so they can 'live long and prosper' in locations beyond the International Space Station. Eating a meal in space involves more than the actual food itself - from growing plants to preparing and eating meals. There are many things to consider, so check out our Rules Summary and Design Guidelines prior to starting your design. We hope you're hungry for space innovation... Good Luck!
