When COVID made its way into the United States, NASA immediately lept into action to find innovative ways to provide relief and assistance. On April 1, 2020, they launched the NASA@WORK internal crowdsourcing challenge, which encouraged everyone across the agency to share ideas on how to respond to the crisis.

They asked for ideas in three project categories:

  • Ventilation devices
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Monitoring and forecasting the spread of impact of the virus

And within two weeks, participants submitted 250 different ideas, and more than 500 comments and 4,500 votes on those ideas. NASA@WORK program lead Carissa Callini said, “At times it seemed as elegant as a space launch. It was exciting to see so many people submit ideas that spanned so many different disciplines and expertise as well as capture the creativity of the NASA workforce.”

What’s Inside

In this case study, you’ll learn about the NASA@WORK challenge on IdeaScale, and how diverse and expert voices came together to help respond to an incredibly difficult and urgent problem.
