Design & Prototype

The astronauts have written a handbook for HUNCH students to learn about the International Space Station.  In the handbook, the astronauts are asked, “What tasks are inefficient, annoying, or do you wish would change on Station?”   In answering this question, astronauts provide HUNCH students with many project and experiment ideas.  Please click ISS HUNCH Overview to obtain a copy of this handbook.


New to the HUNCH Design and Prototyping is the opportunity for students to design a meal for the Astronauts on the International Space Station.  The website  HERE will serve as a “one-stop” shop for information on the challenge including any updates.


Warren Tech 2013-2014 Design and Prototyping Project

The European Physiology Module (EPM), engineered and fabricated first by the European Space Agency (ESA), is a product designed to test ISS faculty health statistics. The EPM project was assigned to the Warren Tech NASA HUNCH S2TEM program by NASA HUNCH headed by Stacy Hale, in the year 2012.

Since then, this 2013-2014 school year’s students have fully taken on the responsibility to follow through with this project until completion.

To complete this project, the NASA HUNCH S2TEM class will be utilizing the resources that are present on the Warren Tech Central campus; Welding and Precision Machining. These such resources will allow Warren Tech students to not only engineer the product with CAD programs in class, but also fabricate and assemble the end product, delivered to NASA JSC in April of 2014.

The Astronaut Office at Johnson Space Center has provided HUNCH students with a handbook that address all the needs and constrains of fabricating a HUNCH Design and Prototyping project

 ISS HUNCH Overview

HUNCH Technical Interchange Meeting for astronauts and ISS engineers to review projects:

On Wednesday, May 22, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM students from 5 HUNCH (High school students United with Nasa to Create Hardware) schools presented the projects they had been working on for the current semester to 13 Astronauts and 24 ISS Engineers who came to the astronauts conference room in Bldg 4S, Rm 6600 at the Johnson Space Center. Many suggestions were made by the visitors to the students and their teachers as to how to improve their designs and whether they could use them on the ISS. This was the largest gathering of Astronauts and ISS Engineers for a HUNCH gathering up till now.
