Created by educators
BLUECUBE Aerospace seeks to Build, Launch, Utilize, and Educate using CubeSat technology with student teams, middle school and high school ages. BLUECUBE Aerospace engages students, teachers and makers through its CubeSat emulator kits, camps, and workshops.
Just as scientific research reflects a new era of multidisciplinary studies, so should the preparation of students reflect crosscutting experiences, knowledge and critical thinking skills through the establishment of a national network of geographically represented instructional nodes.
BLUECUBE Aerospace works with educators and students to experience authentic science, conduct relevant research, and acquire marketable skills for the 21st Century workforce. Research shows that students are better engaged by hands-on instruction and learn through experience. Project-based learning and systems engineering allow students to apply the scientific and engineering methods to real-world problem-solving.
