The challenge seeks to develop new technologies to 3D print a habitat using local indigenous materials with, or without, recyclable materials in space and on Earth. This phase of the competition focuses on the 3D-printing fabrication of a scaled habitat design.
As part of the event, we will again be hosting a Community Day on Saturday, May 4, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Caterpillar’s Edwards Demonstration & Learning Center. Members of the community will be able to check out the competition, participate in hands-on activities and listen and meet an astronaut – Pekin’s very own Scott Altman!)>>
