The video link below is of NASA astronaut Colonel Mike Hopkins, currently on the ISS, showing the student designed tape dispenser in action.. in space! Please note the shout out to Windsor High School at the 2:40 mark. He demonstrates how the device can be operated with one hand (at the 1:12 mark). While multiple schools contributed to the overall design during the process, the seat track attachment innovation that allows for one-handed use came directly out of Mr. Ricci and his students' Technology Education classroom. 

FROM NASA EMAIL: 

"Below are links for a 3 minute video and pictures from the ISS showing the outstanding accomplishment by Mr. Ricci and his Windsor High School HUNCH students who not only designed, but also fabricated and documented an incredibly designed tape dispenser and seat track attachment for the ISS.   This project truly took a team effort, and the excellent results are sincerely appreciated by the astronauts onboard the ISS.
