NASA Wearable Technology Design Studio
During the course of the NASA Wearable Technology Design Studio, students research and develop solutions for specific problems faced by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Using a more scientific approach to product design, student groups develop a series of wearable technology projects using Arduino and various electronic sensors, actuators, LEDs and other devices while conducting design research. The focus is to improve astronauts’ efficiency, safety and health during space flight. Students work closely with our NASA mentor to identify current needs, and also collaborate with engineers from partner universities and industries.
