As NASA prepares for the return to Earth’s Moon, it is calling all undergraduate students who would like to gain hands-on, authentic engineering design experience while also contributing to the upcoming Artemis missions! Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams (Micro-g NExT) is an opportunity for you to make your contribution to NASA’s mission. Micro-g NExT challenges undergraduate students to design and build prototype mission hardware like spacewalk tools. The student designed prototypes are tested in the underwater lunar analog environment of NASA’s 6.2-million-gallon indoor pool – the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) in Houston, where astronauts train for spacewalks. You will apply classroom knowledge and benefit from the expertise of real NASA engineers. Take the Micro-g NExT challenge and join NASA as we embark on a mission to the Moon and beyond.
Letters of intent are due on October 12, 2021 and the proposal deadline is October 28, 2021.
Interested? For tips on how to submit a successful proposal, join the Micro-g NExT Coordinators for an online information session.
