The Museum of Flight is excited to bring back Spacesuit Design Challenge! For this challenge, entrants must design, draw and build an original, handmade Spacesuit that is wearable by the designer, follows the theme and all Challenge requirements and rules.

The Top 5 Spacesuit designs in each category will be showcased in a Fashion Show on Saturday, June 15, 2024. A panel of judges will decide the winning design for each age category (four categories total) and the four winning designs will be showcased at Fashion in Flight on November 2, 2024.
