NASA WEAR Challenge

NASA needs you! This April we are launching the Wearable Equipment for Averting Radiation (WEAR) Challenge. The opportunity gives middle and high school students the task to design wearable radiation countermeasures for deep space exploration. Protecting deep space astronauts from high-energy charged particles and solar particle events (SPE) are important to exploration. You and your team can join the challenge and participate in NASA’s exploration of deep space. Top submissions will be considered for an expense-paid trip to a NASA center. To participate in WEAR, lead teachers must register to participate in the challenge by May 10.

During the challenge, teams will participate in webinars to learn more about deep space radiation and the development of countermeasures. The challenge ends with the submission of video proposals from registered teams. The top proposals will receive invitations to participate in the culminating event at a NASA center.
