Ottawa, Ontario and Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
idoodlelearning, a division of idoodle L.L.C., an educational development company offering innovative solutions to bridge the gap between traditional and digital learning, announced today that it has executed a Space Act Agreement (SAA) with NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia.
The SAA will broaden the reach of idoodlelearning’s Cubes in Space™ program by the collaboration with NASA’s Project Hands-On Project Experience (HOPE). The purpose of the HOPE program is to enable practitioners in the early years of their careers to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to manage NASA’s future flight projects. The Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters manages the program.
A STE[A]M-based education program, Cubes in Space provides an opportunity at no cost to students to design and compete to launch an experiment into space. Utilizing formal or informal learning environments, students and educators will be exposed to engaging content and activities in preparation for the design and development of an experimental payload to be integrated into a small cube (Cube).
NASA Langley will provide access to scientists and engineers within the HOPE program to serve as mentors and subject matter experts for the students during their experiment design process. Student payloads will fly on the HOPE program’s Radiation Dosimetry Experiment (RaD-X) mission in September 2015.
