Ahwatukee Teen Wins National Award for Star Trek Design

Soon-to-be Desert Vista High School senior Kyle Corrette recently won a national award after taking the “Star Trek challenge” and creating a three-dimensional melanized fungarium.

According to Ahwatukee Foothills News, online platform Future Engineers sponsored the competition, and it was judged by experts from NASA, the American Society Mechanical Engineers Foundation, and Made in Space Inc. Corrette was one of 450 entrants and the only winner in the 13-19 age bracket, the newspaper said.

Corrette’s win also got an assortment of cool prizes including a 3-D printer for his school, a trip to New York City for himself and another 3-D printer that uses pancake batter.

“I feel very proud to be recognized on a national scale for my design, especially since I put a lot of hard work into it,” Corrette told the newspaper.
