Grades 3-6

OPTIMUS PRIME wants YOU to showcase your NASA knowledge in a Glog!

Bumblebee Patch Your Mission: Search for Spinoffs in your Environment

OPTIMUS PRIME wants you to identify NASA Spinoff technology in your world and test your skills at changing an everyday object into something that will make your world a better place!

Using a combination of text, images and videos, create a Glogster Multimedia Poster, a “Glog”, that you will use to share your ideas with NASA.

Just like an engineer, you will use an Engineering Design Process to take an everyday object and use it in new ways that will solve a problem.
