NASA and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Foundation have teamed up with Future Engineers, sponsored by the ASME Foundation, for a challenge in which students K-12 will create digital 3D models of a non-edible, food-related items for astronauts to 3D print in the year 2050. With the range of things that can be printed in 2016, it very much feels like we have proto-replicators in our lives now; but we’re just at the beginning. The future holds amazing things, and these children will lead the way! We share details of the contest, entry information, and how you can help nurture the next generation.
