Challenge 6:
Packing Up for the Moon

Student teams will design and build a tabletop model of a plant growth chamber that can be folded, stowed, and shipped on a rocket destined for the Moon. When the shipment arrives, the future lunar astronauts will then be able to expand the plant growth chamber and deploy it on the lunar surface. Because this project is in the development stage, the team will only need to design, build, and present a tabletop model of the plant growth chamber rather than a full-size lunar structure designed to grow enough food for the entire lunar crew.

Develop a plant growth system to help sustain astronauts on a lunar surface.
