Creating Hardware For NASA

On October 19, 2022, Dr. Florence Gold, the NASA HUNCH implementation project manager, visited NHRHS to speak with our Engineering and Product Design students who are participating in the High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program. Dr. Gold spoke with students about NASA and its organization goals, including the NASA HUNCH, and extended her gratitude for all the hard work our students have contributed to the project so far.

NHRHS students are working on the HUNCH Flight Configuration program. Dr. Gold told the students that they are officially NASA employees and work for Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. She urged students to leverage this work to open employment opportunities and aid with college admissions. Currently we are making six different parts for the NASA Express Rack project. Each part must meet NASA’s strict specifications—every dimension must be within .005 inches of the measurement specified on the NASA technical drawing. Our students are using MasterCAM CAD software and CNC milling machines to produce these parts.
