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 projects for 2015-2016 HUNCH Design & Prototyping program are discussed in this PowerPoint.


 

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

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.
