Challenge 2:
Safe Travels

Teams of up to four students will design and build a model of a spacecraft with the goal to safely transport two astronauts on a mission to the Moon, Mars, or other destinations in space. A drop test will determine how well the astronauts are protected during landing. During the drop test, the model spacecraft will be deployed, or dropped, from a height of 2 meters to simulate landing. The hatch must stay closed. The astronauts must stay securely in their seats during the drop test.
