Experiments in Space

Exciting competitions for students to engage with actual space research

This program helps students to develop skills in scientific method, critical thinking and leadership.  Students will experience what scientists go through in preparing for a real world space mission.

Code in Space

Students from around the world can send and execute their own code in space (Low Earth Orbit)

Students may submit proposals, and the selected submissions will be uploaded to a nanosatellite orbiting the Earth.


QMR-KWT is a CubeSat and it's Kuwait’s first satellite.

The educational mission will allow students from around the world to learn more about satellite communications by writing software code to be uploaded and executed on one of the satellite’s onboard computers in an out-of-this-world opportunity for students to Code in Space.
