NASA and OPTIMUS PRIME Team Up to Raise Awareness of NASA Technology
Released on January 27, 2011
OPTIMUS PRIME is more than just a well-recognized name from TV and movies; it is a great analogy for NASA technology transfer and therefore, an excellent teaching tool. The OPTIMUS PRIME Spinoff Award promotes NASA spinoffs, recognizes innovation through technology transfer and promotes innovative communication of spinoff stories to the public through video. The OPTIMUS PRIME Spinoff Award will serve to acknowledge the contribution of both NASA innovators and the companies that spun-off NASA technology for commercial applications, as well as to educate America's youth about the benefits of NASA spinoff technology.
