Engineering will be demystified when students learn to build and test flight hardware, write simple software code, and collect environmental data on the Cubes in Space RB-8 mission in summer of 2023. Throughout this course, students gain an authentic learning experience to discover how engineering skills and design principles enable scientific space exploration and research. Educators facilitate and guide students to gain technology development knowledge and skills using new content modules developed and ION+ Kits. Coming early spring 2023.
Every space mission has a patch that communicates the goals of the mission or program. And Cubes in Space is no different! Students use their imagination, creativity and science communication skills to design a patch for the SR-9 and/or RB-8 missions. We turn the winning designs into high quality decals, fly them on the missions, and give students their patch that flew in space!Learn More
It’s finally back! Let’s get together to celebrate the students’ working together to fly their experiments into space - during a global pandemic! Held each June in Chincoteague, Virginia, home of NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, students, educators and their families can join in the fun of this four-day conference culminating with the NASA RockSat-C/Cubes in Space SR-9 launch. Tours, guest speakers, geeky space activities, a big old barbeque, and student presentations are just some of the fun we have planned! Students with experiments on 2021-2023 sounding rocket or balloon missions are eligible to participate. 19-22 June 2023 Registration and tickets available January 2023.
Learn directly from the Founder of Cubes in Space! This course introduces students to aerospace science and engineering design processes essential for conducting research and designing experiments to fly on a real NASA mission to space in the summer of 2023. By the end of the course, students will design their experiment and complete their Application for Spaceflight. Coming Spring 2023!
Want to learn about the Cubes in Space program and how to deliver it to your students? Then join us for a 2-day, onsite workshop in Hampton, Virginia. This workshop provides a program overview, instruction on how to facilitate the program, curriculum and resources, seminars on the launch and flight conditions, hands-on project-based learning activities and much more!
