Students from Platt Tech in Milford are soon going to see one of their creations go up in space as part of a program where schools nationwide partner with NASA.
This rectangular locker, made by students, is going to be installed on a wall inside the International Space Station and used as storage for many experiments, including a 3-D printer “that can print tissue,” said Platt Tech senior, Anthony DeFelice. “And they need to print it in space because of gravity on earth. You can’t print some of the organs they need on earth.”
This project is part of NASA’s collaborative effort with over 100 high schools.
