NASA works with the Maker community to create new ideas and technologies to drive exploration here on Earth and out in space. The agency uses prizes and challenges, like the Future Engineers 3-D printing challenge for students, and programs like the CubeSat Launch Initiative, which works with students across the country to build and launch small satellites, to encourage innovation and STEM development. During the National Week of Making 2016, NASA committed to continuing its work in order to help groups in all 50 states launch a satellite into orbit.
