With holiday vacations coming up, what better way to spend a little time away from work than with a maker contest? We are very happy to announce a pair of fun and inventive competitions happening right now on Make: Projects.
Growing Beyond Earth Maker Challenge
NASA has proposed an interesting problem to solve: growing plants while on a long space voyage. Ideally we wouldn’t be requiring that our astronauts spend their time watering, weeding, and generally maintaining crops. Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to build an automated system that can care for a crop from seed to plant fully autonomously for 30 days, within a 50 cubic centimeter box.
This contest is open to high school, college, and professional teams. Designs must be submitted by February 3, 2020
