Spinoff
technology and solve a real word problem?

Our Optimus Prime Spinoff Promotion and Research Challenge, known as OPSPARC for short, is a student challenge

that guides teams through various NASA Spinoff technologies that are in their

everyday world. The teams use their imagination, creativity, and engineering

skills to develop their own ideas for NASA spinoff technology.

Spinoffs

are technologies originally created for space and modified into everyday

products used here on Earth.

Perhaps the most widely

recognized NASA spinoff, memory foam was invented by NASA-funded researchers

looking for ways to keep test pilots cushioned during flights. Today, memory

foam makes for more comfortable beds, couches and chairs, not to mention better

shoes, movie theater seats and even football helmets.



There

are more than two-thousand NASA Spinoffs They include memory foam, invisible

braces, firefighting equipment, programmable pace makers, artificial limbs, scratch-resistant

lenses, aircraft anti-icing systems, endangered species tracking software,

cochlear implants, satellite television, long-distance telecommunications, and

many, many more.

The

deadline has been extended to February 26th for our Mission 3 student challenge.

Fans of the Hasbro TRANSFORMERS brand will pick up on the

play on words between the challenge name, OPSPARC, and the “AllSpark”

from the TRANSFORMERS universe. The AllSpark is what gave the TRANSFORMERS

robots life and knowledge, which they use to help mankind — just like NASA

spinoffs. Students from around the globe will have the opportunity to Be

The Spark!
