NASA S.U.I.T.S. Augmented Reality Challenge
This project has ended, but you can still make your gift by visiting give.vt.edu or by calling 800-533-1144.
The NASA SUITS (Spacesuit User Interface Technologies for Students) Design Challenge is for student teams to design and create space suit information displays within an augmented reality (AR) environment. These display and audio environments are intended to aid astronauts in performing spacewalk tasks.
In fall, universities competed across the country, and 12 teams were selected to move on to the final challenge, which takes place April 15-19, 2019 at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Virginia Tech was one of the lucky finalists, and we need to send our team to the competition. In addition, we want to share our project and findings with workshops with K-12 audiences.
