This project is solving the Reach For the Stars challenge.
Kids’ ideas. Shaped by experts. Printed in 3D.
Rocket science is hard.
But it's not impossible to explain! (Cf. http://xkcd.com/1133/)
Tap into children's sense of wonder to create the next generation of rockets and rocket scientists.
A web app to inspire children to build their very own rockets. Kids upload drawings of their dream rockets, and work with engineers to learn more about what makes a rocket functional, and refine their design to be able to 3D print the rocket.
