The U.S. Department of Education (the Department) is announcing CTE Mission: CubeSat (the Challenge), a Challenge funded by the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 as amended by the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act (Perkins V). The Challenge calls upon eligible high schools to design and build CubeSat Prototypes.
The specifications of CubeSats that were adopted by the commercial satellite industry reduce the time and cost to design, build, and launch a satellite, making orbital missions more accessible for both commercial and educational use. For the purpose of this Challenge, and to reduce production time, high schools will be encouraged to build a CubeSat Prototype using more accessible, low-fidelity materials (e.g., 3D-printed material, wood, plastic, or other materials) that meet the standard CubeSat dimensions adopted by industry and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
A CubeSat Prototype can be flown and tested using various flight methods that effectively simulate a low-altitude launch, such as, but not limited to, tethered balloons, amateur rockets, drones, or small aircraft.
By participating in the Challenge, students and educators will gain an understanding of the phases involved in designing, building, and launching a satellite. The Challenge focuses on select elements of the CubeSat development process to enable students to experience as much of the design, build, and flight stages on a timeline significantly shorter than NASA estimates to be typically 18-24 months to build a CubeSat and a few months to a few years to launch a CubeSat into orbit.
Using CubeSat Prototypes, rather than space-ready CubeSats, enables schools to participate in the Challenge and conduct a test flight without the need for design and testing approvals that CubeSats entering orbit require.
The Challenge will offer students a hands-on opportunity to learn valuable technical skills that can be applied to careers in aerospace and many other industries.
We must receive your submission on or before 5:59:59 p.m., Washington, DC time, October 16, 2020.
The Department will determine timeframes for judging Mission Proposals and Flight Reports, as well as the date that finalists and winners will be announced. The Department will conduct an online information session during Phase 1 of the Challenge. The date of the online information session will be determined and announced by the Department and posted on www.CTEMissionCubeSat.com (Challenge Webpage). The dates for Challenge events will be determined and announced by the Department.
Submit entries for the Challenge on www.CTEMissionCubeSat.com.

The definitions of Career and Technical Education and Eligible Institution are from section 3 of the Perkins Act (20 U.S.C. 2301 et seq.). We are establishing the definitions of CubeSat, CubeSat Prototype, Flight Report, and Mission Proposal for the purposes of this Challenge.
CubeSat means a cube-shaped satellite, with dimensions measuring ten (10) centimeters and weighing less than 1.33 kilograms, that can house a variety of sensors, cameras, and other instruments to conduct different scientific experiments known as “missions.”
CubeSat Prototype means a CubeSat model built in accordance with the CubeSat 10cm3 form factor but that is not restricted to the 1.33kg weight limitation, nor is it intended for launch into orbit, and therefore not subject to the same technical, testing, and regulatory requirements as an orbital CubeSat.
Flight Report means the written and visual documentation describing the flight experience and results of the mission, with elements such as, but not limited to, the rationale for pursuing the mission, lessons learned, flight data, visual and/or multimedia documentation (e.g., photographs and/or videos), a detailed flight event planning checklist, a description of the functional CubeSat Prototype, a description of other devices and equipment required for their selected flight method, and a project budget.
Mission Proposal means the written and visual documentation that includes, but is not limited to, a detailed description of objectives, materials needed, plans for prototyping, proposed flight method, and team details. The Mission Proposal may contain multimedia elements.
I. Administration of the Challenge
The Challenge is being conducted by the U.S. Department of Education (Department). Luminary Labs, L.L.C. (Luminary Labs), has been contracted by the Department to assist and support the Department in organizing and managing this Challenge. Activities conducted by Luminary Labs may also include providing technical assistance to potential entrants, entrants, and finalists.
II. Subject of Challenge Competition
Career and Technical Education (CTE) is an essential component of developing a more competitive workforce. As technology becomes a critical component of an increasing number of jobs, education providers (or educational institutions) must adapt to prepare students for 21st century careers. Growth industries, including aerospace, robotics, medical devices, mobile applications, consumer technology, sustainable development, and many more, all point to an increasing need for applied technical learning experiences.
CTE is an essential part of preparing students to succeed in the workforce. Foundational elements of CTE include hands-on applied learning, technical skills attainment, and employability skills. These CTE elements can also be found in the process of designing and building a CubeSat Prototype. Designing and building CubeSat Prototypes would assist students in learning important employability and technical skills that are needed in the 21st century workplace, including engineering, computer science, research, logistics, project management, and marketing.
This Challenge seeks to reinforce and highlight the common elements in CTE and encourage schools to explore innovative ways to bring elements of the CubeSat mission design, prototyping and launch process to CTE.
The Challenge will be conducted in two phases:
(1) Phase 1 Mission Design, including judging;
(2) Phase 2 Mission Build and Launch, which may include judging.
The dates for each of the phases will be determined by the Department and announced on the Challenge webpage.
The two phases are described further below.
Phase 1 Mission Design Description
Potential entrants will receive support through curated and customized online resources as they develop their Mission Proposals and consider various flight methods to launch their CubeSat Prototypes (e.g., balloons, drones, or other locally available launch vehicles). At least one online information session will be held during this phase. Potential entrants may enter the Challenge by submitting a Mission Proposal that will include descriptions of objectives, materials needed, plans for prototyping, proposed flight method, and team details.
Entrants who fulfill the criteria described in the Eligibility section of this notice and complete a submission that meets the requirements of a Mission Proposal will be eligible to proceed into the judging process, and if selected, participate in Phase 2 as a finalist.
Judging: Independent judges will review Mission Proposals using the Finalist Selection Criteria, which are included in the Award Selection Criteria section of this notice and make recommendations to the Department as to which entrants should be selected as finalists. Up to five finalists will be selected from the group of eligible entrants based on submitted Mission Proposals and invited to participate in Phase 2.
Phase 2 Mission Build and Launch Description
During Phase 2, finalists will implement their Mission Proposal by building a CubeSat Prototype and planning flight events where they will each launch their prototype using their proposed flight method. Finalists will receive mentorship and additional virtual resources to support them throughout the self-paced mission build process. Flight events must be conducted by the date and time determined by the Department which will be published on the Challenge webpage. Following the flight event, finalists will submit a Flight Report that includes a detailed description of the flight experience, results, lessons learned, flight data, visual documentation (e.g., photographs and/or videos), a detailed flight event planning checklist, a description of the functional CubeSat Prototype, a description of other devices and equipment required for their selected flight method, and a project budget.
