QuaranSTEAM: Apollo 13 Pandemic Challenge

AGE GROUPS:  
SUBJECTS:  

UNCW Engineering Expectations is challenging kids and families to engineer a prototype face mask with items found in their home.  Just like the Apollo 13 mission astronauts who experienced a most extreme form of social isolation in space along with hostile environmental conditions due to a buildup of CO2, you can only use supplies that you can find in your house (or spaceship) to engineer a solution.

Details about the design requirements can be found here: https://uncw.edu/engineeri…/apollo-13_pandemic_challenge.pdf

Upload your design, tag @UNCWEngineeringExpectations, and we will repost them.
