High School Students United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) Partnering with Educational Institutions to Make a Difference
The HUNCH program allows students to design and fabricate valued products for the International Space Station (ISS)
HUNCH is an instructional partnership between NASA and educational institutions. This partnership benefits both NASA and students. NASA receives cost-effective hardware and soft-goods, while students receive real-world hands-on experiences. A spin-off of this teaming is the inspiration of the next generation of researchers and space explorers.
NASA provides materials, equipment and mentoring that is required to fabricate the items. NASA also provides quality inspection oversight during the fabrication of these items.
The school will provide technical direction to the students, and provide a safe working environment.
At the end of the school year, we recognize all of the students and teachers for their efforts, and display their work.
