Greenstein ‘17 wins the Mars Medical Challenge

This past Tuesday, Seattle Academy senior, Lewis Greenstein ‘17 won the teen category of the Future Engineers Mars Medical Challenge. Lewis first entered the competition in his Upper School Winter Innovations-Prototyping course with David Pynchon. In mid-March, his medical 3D digital Dual IV/Syringe pump object designed for an astronaut to use in space to maintain physical health on a 3-year journey to Mars was selected as a finalist.

Watch Lewis’s video segment on King 5 News as he shares the influences of his design and reflects on the moment he found out he won.

As Seattle Academy already has a 3D printer, Lewis and SAAS have decided to donate the 3D printer, along with a new laptop, to our neighbors on 17th and Union, The World School.

Congratulations Lewis and family!
