SCVi and iLEAD DreamUp to Space

SCVi DreamUp Launch Team Bok Choy 11.2023

Learners, facilitators, staff, and families from SCVi and four more schools in the iLEAD California network are celebrating the learning that happens when we challenge learners with this question: “If you could send an experiment to the International Space Station, what experiment would you design?” Each year, learners participate in the DreamUp to Space Experiment Design Challenge. Their mission is to learn the fundamentals of space exploration, including microgravity, scientific experimentation, and proposal writing.

Through a partnership with DreamUp, learners are empowered to develop the skills to design, develop, and propose an experiment that could be run on the International Space Station. Check out the video below, which captures this year’s journey — from Mixstix loading to our trip to Kennedy Space Center to postflight analysis.
