Irvine CubeSat STEM Program

Speaker

Abstract

The Irvine CubeSat STEM Program (ICSP) is a collaboration between Irvine Public Schools Foundation, and Irvine and Tustin Unified school districts that provides teams of students from all six high schools in the City of Irvine the opportunity to assemble, test, and launch a nano-satellite (CubeSat) into low Earth orbit. The program aims to change the way students experience STEM education and inspire the next generation of innovative thinkers, makers, programmers, and explorers.

Teams work on different components of the satellite to gain advanced hands-on STEM experience, with mentorship from experts from JPL, NASA, and other industry leaders, before coming together to assemble the final project for launch. Last year, ICSP had two successful launches, making history as the first program to launch two all high school student-built CubeSat’s into orbit in less than a year.

The program aims to make STEM careers more accessible, especially to underrepresented groups including females and minorities. ICSP offers students the incredible opportunity to gain hands-on, real-world experience that will prepare them for success in college and beyond.
