NASA Competition

4 Platt Technical High School Students Chosen for NASA HUNCH Design and Prototyping Final Review at Johnson Space Center in Houston TX.

The Platt Tech HUNCH Team was 1 of 3 teams that were chosen from schools around the country, and the final review is being held April 25th at the Johnson Space Center.

Austin Art, age 15, from Milford, CT, Ethan Feldman, age 15, from Milford, CT, Justin Kelly, age 16, from Derby, CT, and, Shayne White, age 15, from West Haven, CT have been selected to participate in the NASA HUNCH Design and Prototyping Final Review at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. 

The NASA HUNCH(High school students United with NASA to Create Hardware) Program, is  an innovative school-based program that partners NASA with high school students across the country. This partnership involves students fabricating real-world products for NASA as they apply their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills as well as learning to work in teams and think creatively.

Their project the “Crew Personalized Mission Reminder Tool” uses mission data from NASA’s Playbook mission planning tool to create a personalized reminder tool for the astronauts, allowing them to easily see what they need to do on a daily basis.

The students need funds for transportation and lodging. Thank you for your consideration
