2019 DROP TOWER CHALLENGE Plant Watering in Microgravity

STEMEngineering

Future long-duration space missions will require crews to grow food; so, understanding how to water plants in microgravity is important—especially because the roots also require air. Teams of high school students are challenged to design and build objects that will transport both water and air in a microgravity environment. Objects created by selected teams will experience microgravity in NASA’s 2.2 Second Drop Tower. NASA will invite the top-performing teams to present their results in a student poster session at the 2019 meeting of the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research.
