Mouser takes Final Call for Entries in a Unique Design Challenge to 3D Print an Object in Space

I.S.S. Design Challenge

Mouser Electronics announces the final call for entries for the exciting and imaginative International Space Station (I.S.S.) Design Challenge, part of Mouser’s acclaimed Empowering Innovation Together program.

Open until midnight Oct. 7, 2016, Mouser and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara are challenging college and university students, engineers, and makers to create a 3D-printable project designed to help I.S.S. astronauts in space. All entries will be judged by Imahara and a former commander of the I.S.S.

In a recently released video, Imahara described what the judges are looking for in a winning entry: useful, practical items that can be used by astronauts on the I.S.S. in their weightless environment.

“This unique challenge gives creators of all stripes a chance to flex their design skills,” said Imahara. “I’m excited to see the amazing concepts Mouser customers think up.”

For the I.S.S. Design Challenge, Mouser has partnered with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Made in Space, along with Hackster and MacroFab. The winner of the ISS Challenge will receive a 3D 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 3D-printed aboard the ISS. Mouser’s valued suppliers Amphenol and Intel are co-sponsors of the program.

“Mouser’s unparalleled selection of electronic components allows both amateurs and professionals to create nearly anything they can dream up for this contest,” said Glenn Smith, President and CEO of Mouser Electronics.
