As we venture deeper into space, what will it take to sustain fresh food supply hundreds of thousands (or millions) of miles from Earth? Participants in the Plant the Moon Challenge will have the opportunity to apply design thinking to the solution to this question with simulated lunar or Martian regolith (space dirt!).

Join us for an Informational Webinar on Monday, August 1st from 6:00-7:00 PM Eastern for details on the upcoming season, the challenge itself, and the chance to engage with the Institute of Competition Sciences staff and NASA partners.

Note on International Shipping

The Institute of Competition Sciences and our partners at the CLASS Exolith Lab are excited to offer the Plant the Moon Challenge as a truly international scientific and competitive experience. We will attempt to ship simulants to you around the world, wherever you are. As the competitor and purchaser, you are responsible for any VAT, tariff, duty, taxes, handling fees, customs clearance charges, etc. required by your country for importing goods.

It is our suggestion that you do research beforehand regarding any additional charges and order simulant well in advance (3-4 weeks) of all deadlines to ensure that you can engage in the planned benchmarks of the Plant the Moon Challenge. Thank you for your engagement and understanding.
