The NASA Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP) Innovation and Tech Transfer Idea Competition (MITTIC) invites students of all majors to bring their ideas for innovative uses of NASA technology.

Teams choose any NASA intellectual property as the basis of their concept and submit proposals using MITTIC challenge guidelines. Top teams are invited to pitch their ideas in the Space Tank as part of a three-day on-site experience at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Space Tank winners will receive $20,000 for first place and $10,000 for second place. The top team will receive a VIP trip to the NASA Ames Experience in Silicon Valley, California.

NASA MITTIC is open to multidisciplinary student teams enrolled at Minority Serving Institutions. Click here for more information.
