NASA-Themed STEM Student Challenge Request for Information

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Office of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Engagement (OSTEM) invites the NASA Space Grant community, academia, and industry to submit responses to this Request for Information (RFI) NNH19ZHA001L to assist NASA in evolving the student challenge portfolio beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year.  NASA’s OSTEM seeks innovative challenge proposals that engage college-level students across the nation in Lunar-focused challenges that align with technology needs of the Artemis Mission and that will inspire, engage, educate and employ the Artemis generation. Responses will be reviewed by NASA and inform the planned release of a Space Grant RFP Solicitation later this calendar year (2019).

NASA-Themed STEM Student Challenge Request for Information

 Summary

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Office of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Engagement (OSTEM) invites the NASA Space Grant community, academia, and industry to submit responses to this Request for Information (RFI) to assist NASA in evolving the student challenge portfolio beginning in the 2019-2020 academic year. NASA’s OSTEM seeks innovative challenge proposals that engage college-level students across the nation in Lunar-focused challenges that align with technology needs of the Artemis Mission and that will inspire, engage, educate and employ the Artemis generation. Responses will be reviewed by NASA and inform the planned release of a Space Grant RFP Solicitation later this calendar year (2019).

STEM student challenges actively engage students in their own learning. NASA’s OSTEM and technical subject matter experts will facilitate NASA’s access to a diverse spectrum of students that will help solve problems critical to NASA’s mission and disseminate NASA-unique, mission-driven STEM content and resources through Student Experiential Learning Opportunities. NASA student challenges use a focused problem-statement approach to obtain solutions and/or stimulate innovation from a broad, sometimes undefined, group rather than a specific, named group or individual. NASA welcomes collaborative nationwide activities that engage measurable numbers of students in NASA STEM student challenges that contribute to NASA’s Human Exploration Mission Directorate (HEOMD) exploration goals and objectives, and supports focused efforts to reach groups historically underrepresented in STEM career fields.

Responses to this RFI are requested within the context of NASA’s current goals and activities related to Lunar 2024 – Artemis (see Appendix A); however, broader ideas encompassing NASA-wide activities will be considered. All concepts should align with NASA’s OSTEM goals (see Appendix B).
