Oak Ridge

Project

Cut out the parts needed and assemble 24 class I (Flight Hardware) Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) Type A Cargo Transfer Bags (CTB).

Purpose

These bags will be used to transfer cargo from earth to the International Space Station.  They will fly up on the Automated Transfer Vehicle launched and flown by the European Space Agency one of NASA’s International Space Station partners.

Overview

The ATV Type A CTB consists of five sub-assemblies; three (3) handles, one (1) strap, four (4) labels, one (1) door and one (1) body.  All of the parts are made out of NOMEX.  NOMEX is used because it is self extinguishing properties i.e. it will burn in the presence of a flame, but when the flame source is removed it will stop burning or self extinguish.  Each handle has two (2) parts, straps have six (6) parts, labels have two (2) parts, the door has eight (8) parts and four (4) sub-assemblies and the body has eighteen (18) parts and the remaining four (4) subassemblies.  The final assembly has four (4) parts and two (2) sub-assemblies the door and body.  Therefore each Type A CTB consists of 48 parts that have to be cut out correctly and sewn together properly.

Team

The Oak Ridge HS HUNCH team consists of sixty (60) family and consumer science students in two (2) apparel classes.  These two classes are 6th and 8th period and are double blocked.  Mrs. Parsons attended a two day class over the summer to learn how to fabricate the Type A CTB.  The team has taken tests in controlled storage, linear measurement and stitch inspection.  Students that meet the testing requirements have been set up (issued stamps) to perform quality control, making sure that procedures and process are in place and are being followed.  The team is making great progress on fabricating the CTBs and is expected to be finished by the end of March 2011.  Mrs. Parsons is an expert in her shop.

Status

Control storage is in place and working as needed.  Teams are in place to cut and kit parts, sew sub-assemblies, hide thread ends and perform quality control.  Need to ship the final materials that are needed to finish all of the parts.

Sub-assemblies: Handles 100%, Straps 100%, Labels100% complete, Doors 65% complete, bodies 15 %.

Final Assembly 5%. Updated 01/10/11

Project

Cut out the parts needed and assemble 12 class I (Flight Hardware) Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV) Type C Cargo Transfer Bags (CTB).

Purpose

These bags will be used to transfer cargo from earth to the International Space Station.  They will fly up on the Automated Transfer Vehicle launched and flown by the European Space Agency one of NASA’s International Space Station partners.

Team

The Bay Area Christian HS HUNCH team will consists of thirteen (13) volunteer students selected by the teacher.  The team is currently being trained and tested in quality control for controlled storage, linear measurement and stitch inspection.  Students that meet the testing requirements will be set up (issued stamps) to perform quality control, making sure that procedures and process are in place and are being followed.  The team is preparing to begin fabricating the CTBs and is expected to begin fabrication in Jan 2011.

Status

Control storage is in place and working as needed.  Teams will be designated to cut and kit parts, sew sub-assemblies, hide thread ends and perform quality control.  Need to ship the final materials that are needed to finish all of the parts.

Sub-assemblies: Handles 2/12 sets complete, Straps 2/12 complete, Labels 2/20 sets complete, Doors 3/05 complete and bodies 3/11 complete.

Project 1

Project 1 Engineering and Design Class

Design, fabricate, and document an experiment to fly on the Zero-G plane in April, 2011. The experiment is to investigation how microgravity will affect their proposed ISS plant growth chamber.

Purpose

The plant growth chamber is proposed to fly on the ISS.  However, student explorations are to inspire the next generation of scientists.

Overview

The students are designing an aeroponics plant growth chamber which will operate within constrains of the ISS. This school year, students will investigate aspects of their plant growth chamber that may be affected by microgravity conditions. Twenty-three students are divided into the following groups: integration, plant viability, electrical (sensors), water system, and lighting.

Team

The Engineering and Design HUNCH team has students in the 3rd class period.

Status

The students are new this year to the project. Last year’s students flew on the Zero-G plane to test their watering system. This year in April 2011 students and the experiment successfully flew on the Zero-G plane to test the water system as well as the temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide levels within the plant growth chamber. At present the students are doing research and preparing PowerPoints to present on their topic.

Project 2

Project 2 Family and Consumer Science Class

Design, fabricate, and document an collapsable, and disposable glove box to fly on the Zero-G plane in April, 2011 and design and fabricate a protype crew quarters organizer.

Purpose

Astronauts are in need of a glove box that they can use one time when working with liguids that may spill into the glove box. Astronauts would like an organizer for their crew quarters that can efficiently store their personal items.

Overview

The students have been able to fly their protype glove box on the zero-g plane in April 2011 and it opened and collapsed well in microgravity conditions.  The students were able to fabricate 2 prototype crew quarter’s organizers.

Team

The team is made up of 2 classes of Family and Consumer Science.

Status

A prototype for both the collapsible glove box and the organizer for the crew quarters were successfully designed and fabricated.
