#SPW15 - Ice Cubes Service Educational Projects, Inspiration for STEM by sending your experiment to space

  1. 1. International Commercial Experiments Service ICE Cubes Service Educational Projects Inspiration for STEM by sending your experiment to space www.icecubesservice.com icecubes@spaceapplications.com ICU-SA-PRES-025
  2. 2. International Commercial Experiments Service Covered objectives • Motivate students to develop their competences in the STEM disciplines • Inspire students to start their career in the STEM fields • Increase awareness of space research ICU-SA-PRES-025
  3. 3. International Commercial Experiments Service • ICE Cubes service allows your students to directly develop and conduct their experiment on the International Space Station, the only laboratory in space ICU-SA-PRES-025 Design at school Upload to ISS Install by crew Operate from school
  4. 4. International Commercial Experiments Service Inspirational • Unforgettable experience for the kids – Students can be directly involved in the development of the experiment ICU-SA-PRES-025
  5. 5. International Commercial Experiments Service Impressive • Media interest (kids using the ISS) • Past successful experiences from NCESSE (National Centre for Earth and Space Science Education USA) – 51 communities – 99,800 grade 5-14 students actually designed a payload – at least 428 schools involved. ICU-SA-PRES-025
  6. 6. International Commercial Experiments Service Flexible • Multiple schools could receive data directly at their premises and interact with the experiment in near-real time via internet. ICU-SA-PRES-025 • Multiple experiments could be fitted in one Experiment Cube • The experiments can be available up to 4 months (minimum) on board ISS
  7. 7. International Commercial Experiments Service Multidisciplinary • During the experiment’s objectives definition: – Biology – Physics – Chemistry – Mechanics – Robotics – …. • During the experiment’s design and development – Mechanical design – Thermal analysis – Electronics design – Software development ICU-SA-PRES-025
  8. 8. International Commercial Experiments Service Possible scenario for educational projects ICU-SA-PRES-025 Step I Definition of the science objectives. Involve your students on MicroG research and stimulate their fantasy in proposing experiments for the International Space Station Step II Design your Experiment Cube: Start from a simple set of requirements and design your experiment learning what are the different phases of the development. Step III Ground Testing. Enjoy testing, at your facility all the features you created. We’ll give the software simulation instruments for that. Step IV Shipment to launching facilities. Say goodbye to your experiment, next interaction will be in space!
  9. 9. International Commercial Experiments Service ICU-SA-PRES-025 Step V Follow the launch from your school! Step VI A crew member will install the experiment. Live video might be available! Step VII Enjoy operating your cube in space. You can monitor from your school with real-time data. We’ll give the software for that. Possible scenario for educational projects
