http://futureengineers.org/#challenge – This contest is to create a tool that the students believe astronauts need in space. It is open to k-12 students. One of the prizes for winning is the tool that you make will be one of the first objects printed in space. There are other prizes based on age, such as a donated 3D printer for a school whose student is between the ages of 5-12 or for the older students there is a runner up prize of a trip to Los Angeles for a day of Movie VFX Education at Digital Domain to see how 3D models are used in movies and a tour of SpaceX where you get to see rockets up close.
