MakerBot Lunar Expedition -- NGSS Aligned -- #GoogleExpedition

In this quick project, students will serve as architects working to design new buildings for a Lunar Base Station, using information they gained from their Lunar Expedition. Students must make sure that their buildings satisfy the Critical Design Requirements given a set amount of materials and time. The buildings will be made from 3D printed parts + drinking straws.
