NASA is continuing a student engineering opportunity at the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL).
Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams, or Micro-g NExT, challenges students to design and build prototypes of spacewalk tools and then travel to Houston to test their prototypes in the simulated microgravity environment of NASA’s 6.2 million gallon indoor pool – the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL), where astronauts train for spacewalks.
Through this activity, the NBL is open to students for hands-on engineering design. Advisors and mentors are encouraged to have students apply for Micro-g NExT. The proposal deadline is November 1, 2018.
For tips on how to submit a successful proposal, join the Micro-g NExT Coordinator for an online information session. Information sessions are available at https://microgravityuniversity.jsc.nasa.gov during these upcoming times:
- September 20, 2018, 6p.m. Central Time
- October 1, 2018 at 6p.m. Central Time
