The ISS Design Challenge, co-sponsored by Mouser’s valued suppliers Amphenol and Intel®, is a call to college and university students, engineers and makers, to create a 3-D-printable project designed to help ISS astronauts in space. Designs may include small electronics to be used with the object. All entries will be judged by Grant Imahara and a former commander of the ISS.

For the ISS Design Challenge, Mouser has partnered with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Made In Space, Hackster and MacroFab. The winner of the ISS Challenge will receive a 3-D printer, a consultation with Made In Space—pioneers in additive manufacturing technology for use in the space environment—and the prestige of seeing their design 3-D-printed aboard the ISS.

To accompany the contest, Mouser Electronics and Grant Imahara will release a series of videos on the Empowering Innovation Together site at www.mouser.com/empowering-innovation.
