Pathway to Space

2021: TIS is working with Blue Origin’s Club for the Future to launch student-made postcards to the upper atmosphere and space. Tracking will be handled by QR codes affixed to the postcards so that students can see the chain of custody from the time that they first receive the postcard to when they get it back from a flight.

2022: TIS will be giving professional development workshops for teachers over the summer break in multiple parts of the country. Participants will learn to build Cubesat experiments with their students, and will be able to launch those experiments on high altitude balloons and rockets.

2023: Student-made experiments from classrooms of teachers who attended the 2022 workshops will be selected to launch on suborbital flights on Blue Origin rockets.

2024: Teachers to be launched on suborbital and orbital flights???
