A STE[A]M-based education program, Cubes in Space provides an opportunity at no cost to students to design and compete to launch an experiment into space. Utilizing formal or informal learning environments, students and educators are exposed to engaging content and activities in preparation for the design and development of an experimental payload to be integrated into small cubes (Cubes). In its third year, the competition has grown to include thousands of participants from 22 countries around the world. While still continuing to launch via sounding rocket from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia, idoodlelearning has signed a new partner, Ideatech from Colombia, to facilitate a second flight for 2016 of a high altitude balloon.
