Space-Based Research for Your Learner

In partnership with NanoRacks, we’ve created cost-effective kits to bring space-based research to your home, classroom, or afterschool program. Each Dreamkit comes with the tools and equipment to conduct an awesome space-based STEM experiment, a detailed scientific workbook, and access to an online portal to compare results on Earth with the results of the same experiment on the International Space Station. Purchase yours today!

In partnership with DreamUp, and our launch services provider NanoRacks, SSEP has flown 240 student experiments to the International Space Station, engaging 86,800 students grades 5-16. Mission 12 launched on June 29, 2018, splashed down on August 3, 2018, and the students are analyzing their data. Mission 13 is expected to launch in Spring 2019. Featured above are students from Hamlin Park School 74 in Buffalo studying potato growth, inspired by The Martian!

Partnership with DLR

In coordination with the German space agency, DLR, university teams across Germany competed for the opportunity to launch an experiment to space through the Überflieger program. The three teams selected are investigating questions such as how planets form and how propulsion technology works in microgravity. PAPELL and ARISE launched to the Space Station on SpaceX-15, and EXCISS launched on NG-10. Learn more on our blog.
