This year’s statewide design challenge features an exciting space program called Starlab. Students will explore what it means to live and work in space.
About Starlab ExpertLink
The Starlab Partnership has been the catalyst for this year’s design challenge. The members of Starlab were integral in planning every aspect of this year’s design challenge and supplied all the expert knowledge contained within this booklet. We are grateful that the students of Ohio will benefit from the work of these real-world innovators.
Starlab ExpertLink is a multi-state network of experts in space-related industries who are willing to serve remotely on advisory panels to assist K-12 students in classrooms as they engage with this year’s design challenge related to Starlab and the George Washington Carver Science Park at The Ohio State University.
The ExpertLink panels will allow students to access professionals in careers that span industries engaged in low earth orbit research and development in fields that include aerospace engineering, agriculture, advanced materials, and biomedical sciences. Panels will meet via Zoom with a class. Based on project need, school request and panel availability, panels and students may meet over several months.
Beginning in late August, a representative from each school registered for the design challenge will receive information about how to participate in ExpertLink.
