Engineering will be demystified when students learn to build and test flight hardware and write simple software code to collect environmental data. 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 as they gain technology development knowledge and skills using new content modules developed and ION+ Kits
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-8 and/or RB-7 missions. We turn the winning designs into high quality decals, fly them on the missions, and give students their patch that flew in space!Coming Soon
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-8 launch. Tours, guest speakers, geeky space activities, a big old barbeque, and student presentations are just some of the fun we have planned!
Learn directly from the Founder of Cubes in Space! This 9-week 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 2022. By the end of the course, students will design their experiment and complete their Application for Spaceflight.Learn More
