Art in Space Winners Announced

Today we are happy to announce the winners of our OK Go Sandbox Art In Space Contest! Our two winning teams include students Alexandra Slabakis (16), Grace Clark (16), and Annabelle Clark (12), based in New York City. This team’s project is called “Dark Origin” and will use gravity and magnetism to simulate the origin of planet Earth. The second winning team is based in Utah and includes students Cameron Trueblood (11), Blake Hullinger (12), and Kellen Hullinger (15). Their design proposes using flight data taken during the space craft’s journey to create sounds and visual art. These teams will begin working with engineers, artists and educators from the Playful Learning Lab, in consultation with Blue Origin and OK Go, on flight ready versions of their ideas. Sign up for the OK Go Sandbox newsletter at okgosandbox.org to follow the progress! Thank you to all who participated, it was a challenge to choose from so many imaginative ideas.
