Design Challenges

SPACE in Schools

Mars Biomedical Space Hub (BSH)

Students form a virtual design company that will bid for the Bio-Medical Space Hub (BSH) design. They will have to build a 3D model of the Space Hub and then present their design ideas to a team of industry judges.

Mars Transport Vehicle (MTV)

Student teams design and construct an off-road vehicle with a trailer with remote-controlled steering and use it to negotiate an ‘extreme’ 4×4 obstacle course while the clock is ticking.

Space Loading Dock (sld)

Student teams design and construct a method of loading a payload from a platform onto the MTV, designed by a separate group of students.
