Optimus Prime Spinoff Promotion & Research Challenge (OPSPARC)

Spinoffs are like OPTIMUS PRIME- they come from Space to solve problems on Earth!

NASA spinoffs are technologies originally created for space and modified into everyday products used here on Earth—including memory foam, invisible braces, firefighting equipment, artificial limbs, scratch-resistant lenses, aircraft anti-icing systems, shoe insoles, water filters/purification, cochlear implants, satellite television, and long-distance telecommunications.

Once you have registered for OPSPARC and receive your PRIVO iD, you will be able to login at and download a NASA Glog Template suited to your grade level.

Using a combination of text, images and videos, you will create a NASA Glogster Multimedia Posters (Glogs) that you will use to upload and share your ideas with NASA.

OPTIMUS PRIME asks you to use your imagination and creativity to identify NASA Spinoff technology in your world and test your skills at changing an everyday object, or NASA technology, into something that will make your world a better place!
