Free Program -- Cubes in SpaceTM
Audience: Middle and High School Educators and Students
Registration Deadline: January 12, 2015

idoodlelearning, inc, the Colorado Space Grant Consortium and NASA's Science Mission Directorate are offering a free science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics focused education program for students ages 11-18. Cubes in Space™ provides students an opportunity to design and compete to launch an experiment into space.

Using formal or informal learning environments, students and educators will be exposed to engaging online content and activities in preparation for the design and development of an experimental payload to be integrated into a small Cube. 

These Cubes will be launched via a Terrier-Orion sounding rocket from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, Va., in late June 2015 and is open to international students 11-14 years of age. A second flight opportunity is on a zero-pressure scientific balloon launched from Ft. Sumner, New Mexico in September 2015 and is open only to students 11-18 years of age who are U.S. citizens. 

Leveraging the excitement of space exploration, students and educators will learn about the methodology for taking an idea from design through the review process. Throughout the experience, students will acquire key 21st century skills necessary for success in a highly connected, global society.

The deadline for program registration is January 12, 2015
