A national challenge to bring space missions to students

As the boundaries of our missions in space continue to expand, so do the opportunities for today’s students to explore a wide range of related careers in space — or their own communities. Designing and building a CubeSat prototype in CTE Mission: CubeSat will offer students a firsthand opportunity to learn valuable technical skills that can be applied to careers in space and many other industries.
