Apollo 13 Pandemic Challenge

Are ready to take on the Apollo 13 Pandemic Challenge?

UNCW Engineering Expectations is challenging you to be innovative just like the astronauts from Apollo 13. We want you to use materials in your home along with the engineering design cycle to create a prototype face mask that minimizes liquids, pollen, and bacteria from getting to your nose and mouth.

Download our Apollo 13 Pandemic Challenge, Upload your design, tag @UNCWEngieeringExpectations, and we will repost your creations.
