GravityGames

GravityGames is a new STEM innovation for students (9th-12th grade) to promote the understanding of zero-gravity, space manufacturing and astronaut life on the International Space Station.

Life for an astronaut aboard the International Space Station (ISS) is very busy and highly stressful. When given free time, what do these astronauts do to let off some steam and have some fun? STEM students in the San Francisco Bay Area came together to invent games that are made in space, to be played in space.

The project, called GravityGames, is the first hand-held game that will be made on the ISS 0G 3D printer targeted for a very important group of people who live and work in space. To imagine, inspire and connect STEM to Space.
