Cubes in Space 2020

A free STEAM project-based learning program for formal and informal educators and their students, 11-18 years of age is being offered this year. Cubes in Space provides students the opportunity to design and compete to launch small experiments into space. Selected experiments will be launched via sounding rocket from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia in late June 2020 and from a high-altitude scientific balloon from NASA’s Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility in New Mexico in late August 2020. 

Cubes in Space was designed with the learner AND educator in mind.  Our program is an authentic, project and inquiry-based learning experience with a real opportunity to conduct scientific research and fly an experiment in space on a NASA mission in 2020.  Cubes in Space provides a way for students to engage in deep learning and critical thinking.  For more information please visit
