Would you like to have you and your students’ names flown on the Orion Exploration Flight Test-1 (EFT-1) Mission?


Well you are in luck!


The Exploration Design Challenge is for grades K-12. Student’s research and design ways to protect astronauts from space radiation. Student’s grades 9-12 can take the challenge a step further and design a radiation shield with one winning design built and flown on EFT-1.


The unmanned mission is set to launch from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in late 2014. The deadline to complete the challenge and submit names is July 31, 2014. Thousands of educators and students across the globe have registered to take part in the challenge. What are you waiting for?


We will be having two Digital Learning Network sessions where you can get more information.
