Cubes in SpaceTM, a program by idoodledu inc., is the only global competition, offered at no cost, for students 11-18 years of age to design and propose experiments to launch into space or a near space environment on a NASA sounding rocket and zero-pressure scientific balloon.

We do NOT fly cubesats, nanosats or any other small satellites. This program is for non-university students to conduct scientific research. We will NOT select any "world's smallest satellite" or small-sat themed experiments or concepts for flight.


Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the SR-7 and RB-6 missions were postponed by NASA until 2021. Specific launch dates TBD.
Cubes in Space is offered in collaboration with NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center Wallops Flight Facility, NASA's Langley Research Center and the Colorado Space Grant Consortium.
