Update Research Project INTO ORBIT
Last update on 2018-08-29 by Christine Widmann.
In many past seasons, the Project directions have instructed teams to “design an innovative solution that adds value to society.” For the INTO ORBITSM Project, your problem is very unique: You must “identify a human physical or social problem faced during long duration space exploration within our Sun’s solar system and propose a solution.” For this season, to avoid any confusion about just whom your solution should benefit, we have removed the phrase “adds value to society” from the Challenge Guide. This is to make it clear that your team only needs to worry about finding a solution that helps the people in space affected by your problem. If it happens to also help people on Earth by creating a “spinoff” solution, that’s great! However, it’s not a requirement.
Also, remember that teams are expected to share their work as part of the FIRST® LEGO® League Project. However, we realize that it may not be possible to share your research with an expert in space exploration. That’s OK! Remember that you can share your Project with any of the professionals you consulted as part of your research.
