DESIGN TEAMS

MEET THE Fall 2009 TEAMS

INTRODUCING THE FALL 2009 DESIGN CHALLENGE TEAMS
The Design Challenge program celebrates its seventh anniversary during the Fall 2009 semester with eight teams embarking upon the task of finding solutions to NASA-JSC provided design topics. One team returns from the Spring 2009 slate of teams to complete their year long project; seven others begin work on one and two-semester projects - most of which focus on NASA's mission to Return to the Moon.
