High School and college students have the opportunity to dive into the world of space stations with this exciting international technology design competition! The International Space Station National Laboratory is a research facility orbiting 250 miles above the Earth. This Challenge tasks high school and college students with pitching new technologies to enhance ISS capabilities.

The Space Station Technology Challenge engages teams of high school and college students in creating innovative new space station capabilities. Not only is the ISS National Laboratory providing incredible research opportunities for scientists from all over the world, new space stations are already being developed for commercial, industrial, government, and educational use. The Space Station Technology Challenge was developed by The Institute of Competition Sciences through a grant from the ISS National Laboratory. The Challenge provides students with a training course covering the broad spectrum of technologies needed for space station operations and research. It guides teams through a process of discovering interesting use cases and technical requirements. It engages students in identifying, designing, and presenting their own future technologies that may one day be valuable additions to the next generation of orbital space stations. Register now to get started and compete for the pitch competition for a shot at the Best-in-Show Awards!

There are no news items for this competition at this time.

Teams of up to 5 students in high school or college will design and pitch concepts for their own innovative technologies in one of two categories: (1) Technologies that enhance space station capabilities, or (2) Technologies that use space station capabilities to enhance an Earth Industry in a unique way. A training course is provided to help guide students through learning about all the unique technologies, systems, and processes that make a space station run along with learning about the unique research capabilities provided by the ISS National Laboratory. To compete, teams submit a pitch deck of up to 12 slides and record a short video presentation describing their technology. Details on the requirements for the pitch deck and recorded presentation can be found in the materials provided once your team is registered.

Submission guidelines are available upon registering.
