Teams of architecture and engineering students from the New York Institute of Technology will compete to design and build an on-deck aircraft hangar for the USS Intrepid’s Sea, Air and Space Museum.
The permanent, enclosed hangar will be used for aircraft restoration projects on the carrier, which is moored on the Hudson River at Pier 86 in on Manhattan.
Student teams must work within a $1 million budget and use "sustainable, renewable (i.e., wind, solar, etc.) energy technologies to showcase the hangar, while simultaneously meeting the needs of the museum," NYIT said in a news release.
All students at NYIT’s campuses in Old Westbury and Manhattan are eligible to take part.
The winning team will be chosen by representatives from the Intrepid Museum at the end of the fall semester in December. Cash prizes will be awarded — $3,000 for first place, $2,400 for second, and $1,500 for third.
