A team of undergraduate engineering students have been selected as finalists for the 2018 NASA RASC-AL Mars Ice Challenge for their project on "Northeastern University Planetary Articulating Water Extraction System (NU PAWES)". The team will receive $10k to develop their ideas into a prototype for the competition at the Langley Space Center in June. Finalists will have to design, build, and test prototype systems capable of extracting water from simulated Martian subsurface ice.

The team includes Elisa Danthinne (EE ‘21), Emmy Kelly (ME ‘20), Rashad Khan (CE ‘21), Daniel McGann (CE/CS ‘20), Patrick Moore (EE ’21), Andrew Panasyuk (ME‘20), Grace Peck (Phys ‘20), Fizzah Shaikh (EE ‘21), Tucker Spencer-Wallace (ME ‘21), Ben Zinser (ME’21) and is advised by ECE Associate Professor Taskin Padir.
