NASA is looking to go to Mars, and they need YOUR help!
NASA’s iTech Forum is an opportunity for startups, students and professors to team up with NASA to solve some of the biggest problems of space exploration. Specifically, NASA is looking for ideas that solve the challenges of radiation, life support systems, crew health, earth sciences and propulsion. By partnering up with outside labs and startups, NASA hopes to give these labs and startups the opportunity to learn and grow and help create the technology to send us to Mars!
If you are interested in proposing your idea or solution, submit a five-page white paper summarizing your proposed innovation by Monday, October 17, 2016. On November 2, the National Institute of Aerospace will select the top 25 potential solutions; the list will be narrowed down to the top 10 potential solutions on November 15. Those representing the top 10 innovations will be invited to attend and participate in the NASA iTech Forum at NASA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. on December 5-8, 2016.
Faculty: submit your own proposal and encourage your students to submit their ideas too!
