Design a tool to be used in space!

Do you think you could design a tool that would be useful in space? Students can use free 3D design software to create a new combination tool from two tools already being used on the International Space Station. The best design will be 3D printed in space! Look for the Two for the Crew Challenge on NASA.gov and submit your idea before December 19th! Maybe you’ll grow up to be an astronaut and get to use your own invention!
