NASA Spinoff Technologies

Did you know that space technology is all around you? The heart defibrillator your grandparents might have or the memory foam mattress you sleep on at night, or even the purified water you drink at your house are all technologies developed by NASA engineers, scientists and innovators. NASA is required to share its technologies with the public. The public then can take these technologies and make them into something that you can use around your house, at school or even on the road. These are known as spinoffs.

The contest is run by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Innovative Partnerships Office in Greenbelt, Md., and aims to raise student awareness of how NASA technologies provide benefits to the public, as well as show the similarities with the popular OPTIMUS PRIME character from Hasbro's TRANSFORMERS brand. Students nationwide in grades 3-12 were able to participate in this year's contest.

The ceremony will include managers from NASA and Hasbro, the winning students, along with the associated NASA innovators and their commercial partners, and Peter Cullen, the voice of OPTIMUS PRIME.
