Until The Next Rocket Launch

 
 




SPACE HARDWARE IN SCHOOL



Students start by learning to code their very own space experiments on satellite hardware.

This gives students something tangible to work with as they learn how to code the sensors and analyse the data.

BUILD A SPACE MISSION USING OUR CURRICULUM



Once you join the program you will have access to our online teaching and learning resources.

We have mapped our unit to the national curriculum for you.




 
 




BUILD SKILLS FOR THE FUTURE



As students progress through the program, they learn new skills such as coding, data analysis and engineering.

Our program gives students the confidence to aim higher and literally reach for the stars.

DEVELOP YOUR SPACE EXPERIMENT




The aim of the program is for students to get creative about what they want to do in space.

They will code an experiment using the 10 sensors and then it will be launched into space.

Schools are already coming up with incredible experiments that will go to the International Space Station in November.




 
 




READY, STEADY, LAUNCH




When it's time to launch your experiment to space. All you need to do is submit your code.

We'll test it to make sure your experiment will work, then ship to the launchpad to get loaded onto a SpaceX rocket.

RUN YOUR EXPERIMENT IN SPACE




You'll be able to watch the rocket launching your experiment live online. Remember, you own part of that rocket launch.

The rocket will fly to the International Space Station where an astronaut will install the Quberider experiment module on the ISS.



The next launch is November 2016




 
 




BEAM DOWN YOUR RESULTS




Once your experiment is run on the ISS, the data will be beamed back down to Earth and we'll send it out to your school.

As a class you'll be able to analyse the data and learn from your observations.
