Our Story

A Little About Us

Our mission is to realize an educational community where space-based research and learning opportunities are available to all students, from primary to post-doctorate, to Space Station and beyond.

DreamUp Is Answering the Call to Action

DreamUp provides opportunities for students and teachers to gain unparalleled real-world STEM experience to engage today’s dreamers and prepare tomorrow’s problem solvers.

Our world is becoming increasingly more globalized and technology-driven. Students no longer need to perceive STEM as being too difficult. Our hands-on experience teaches students more than science and technology. Our programs develop skills in communication, problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and data analysis in a way that’s exciting and engaging for students of all levels.

Our Students Are The Best!

  • Increased interest in science and math education
  • Desire to pursue STEM careers
  • Engage in real-world science experience

We are the organization we are today because of the students, teachers, parents and advisors that are passionate about the mysteries of the universe. Student researchers are a key part of our team and our success. Every year we grow the number of students engaged in space-based research by thousands, and every year, a new generation of explorers is born.
