What We Do

Online Courses Rocketry, Robotic Vehicles, and more. These enriched learning experiences connect the content to hands-on applications. Go from theory and design to fabrication to data analysis to craft your own space system and knowledge.
Lander Challenge Take rocketry to the next level with vertical landing technology. Delve into the critical factors of a gimbal system, thrust termination, and attenuated landing legs that culminate with a student competition to land upright within a designated target.
Outreach Sharing our excitement for space-relevant technologies with youth and community through engaging concept demonstrations, competition livestreams, and authentic learning experiences. We look to inspire the next generation in space exploration.
A collaboration between the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville to promote interest in STEM career pathways, especially those in the space domain. Through the fabrication of integrated educational resources on space-related technologies, we seek to support learners' development of fundamental knowledge and hands-on capabilities. Learners will engage in direct experiences of systems that emphasize command, control, and data acquisition integral to space endeavors.

Our approach is "Learning by Doing" to create meaningful content and connections. System courses provide the opportunity to not only build but to understand the process and how to apply it again. It begins with fundamental knowledge put into action.
