The JPL Invention Challenge is a friendly, yet challenging competition open to JPL employees and contractors, their family members, and students from local middle and high schools. Each year, a different engineering challenge is selected. The goal of the Invention Challenge is to show students that math, science, and engineering can be fun.
The theme for this year's contest is:"Don't Waste a Drop Contest"
Create a device that can transport water in a plastic cup into the water vessel located 2 meters away in the fastest time without wasting a drop of water. The winner will be the team whose device accomplishes the task in the fastest time.
