Project opportunity: The 21-22 NASA Micro-g NExT Artemis Student Challenge

This is the 21-22 NASA Micro-g NExT Artemis Student Challenge that is a great opportunity for Mechanical Engineering undergraduate students.

NASA Micro-g NExT video:

Micro-g Neutral Buoyancy Experiment Design Teams (Micro-g NExT) challenges undergraduate students to design, build, and test a tool or device that addresses an authentic, current space exploration challenge. The overall experience includes hands-on engineering design, test operations, and public outreach. Test operations are conducted in the simulated microgravity environment of the NASA Johnson Space Center Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL). Teams will propose design and prototyping of a tool or simulant identified by NASA engineers as necessary in space exploration missions. Professional NBL divers will test the tools and students will direct the divers from the Test Conductor Room of the NBL facility. Micro-g NExT provides a unique opportunity to contribute to NASA’s missions. The 2022 Micro-g NExT challenges focus on the lunar extravehicular activities (EVA) operations aspect of the Artemis missions.

Hello All,


Please share with your students.

 When the student connects to the computer lab using the computers listed on the Citytech website they have to do the following steps:

Complete the steps for resetting or changing the password and allow 10 minutes to synchronize the password.

·         The next step is download the VPN from

Please see the following links on how to configure the Global protect for Mac, windows, iPad, Chromebooks      

                After all this steps are done, remember that every time that they want to use a lab computer they have to connect to the VPN first then go to the list of the computers for each department located at . after they follow all the initial steps and connected to the Lab computer and ask for the user name they have to do the  following:

Username: Domain\Username……….example ————————————- NYCCT\Username


Username:         Username@Domain…………………………………………………….Username@NYCCT

Thank you.
