Deadline Approaching: NASA Big Idea Challenge

Audience: Undergraduate and Graduate Students
Application Deadline: Thursday, January 16, 2020 at 11:59 PM Eastern

The Breakthrough, Innovative and Game-changing (BIG) Idea Challenge is an initiative supporting NASA’s Game Changing Development Program (GCD) efforts to rapidly mature innovative/high impact capabilities and technologies for infusion in a broad array of future NASA missions.

The BIG Idea Challenge also offers real world experience for university students in the development of the systems needed to support NASA’s exploration goals. For this reason, the Space Grant Consortium is supporting this year’s challenge. In FY20, Space Grant is leveraging funds to help develop the next line of a STEM-trained workforce with skills and experience aligned directly with STMD technology focus areas and capability needs.

Participation in the 2020 BIG Idea Challenge is limited to teams of undergraduate and graduate students at accredited U.S.-based colleges and universities officially affiliated with their state’s Space Grant Consortium. However, non-Space Grant affiliated colleges/universities may partner with a lead Space Grant University. The BIG Idea challenge allows students to incorporate their coursework into real aerospace design concepts and work together in a team environment. Multi-university and interdisciplinary teams are encouraged.

For more information, please see the BIG Idea Challenge Page.
