we inspire learning
Cuberider gives high school students the opportunity to learn valuable STEM skills by designing and coding experiments that are tested in space on the International Space Station.
Our program is specifically designed to teach students creative and critical thinking, so that they become the next generation of leaders, innovators and problem solvers.
Your class will access the space program through the Launchpad program. Here you will find curated content that has been designed to inspire and engage students.
Activities, micro-assessments, mapping to the national and NSW curriculums
There is a focus on hard skills like coding and data science, soft skills like team work and communication and knowledge around physics and Earth/space sciences.
Students learn and train or their space mission using the technology designed here in Australia, approved by NASA for flight to the International Space Station.
The Space Lab is fitted with 12 unique sensors that allow students to design and build experiments.
Sensors allow students to test virtually anything from variations in the earth’s magnetic field and Einstein's ‘Theory of Relativity’, to astronaut’s exposure to radiation. Students have even used sensors to create music and art using data patterns.
The program works up to the grand crescendo: the space mission.
Student's submit their experiments in advance to be tested and then launched on a rocket to the International Space Station.
HOW IT WORKS
We have put together a complete program including content, activities, worksheets, assessments and mapping to curriculum.
Now, you just need to choose how you will run it in your school: as an elective or embedded with your science or technology class in any (or all!) of the years 7-10.
YOU'LL NEED TO KNOW:
Number of Students
Number of Space labs
Number of Earth orbits
When you apply, we will work with you to figure out how many of each of these aspects your school needs to make the space program come to life.
