DreamUp is expanding space-based educational opportunities around the world through unique partnerships like Überflieger, a student space competition run by DreamUp and the German Space Agency DLR.
German students captivated by the mysteries of the cosmos had an extra festive holiday season this December with the announcement of Überflieger, a competition to design an experiment to be run in outer space. Now that all applications are in, DreamUp is excited to announce its partnership with the German Space Agency DLR to manage and judge this contest, which will culminate in the selection of three student teams whose research idea will be launched and operated on board the International Space Station (ISS). The winning experiments will be flown to the ISS in 2018 and conducted as part of German ESA Astronaut Alexander Gerst’s next mission.
DreamUp is honored to unite some of the brightest minds in the aeronautical universe to assist students with their ideas and ultimately select the three Überflieger winners. These winning teams will receive expert technical support throughout the competition and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the launch of their payloads into space via the DreamUp myLAUNCH program.
DreamUp looks forward to working with space agencies around the globe to bring this program to students in every nation.
