Program to Inspire the Next Generation of Scientists and Engineers

The Student Spaceflight Experiments Program (SSEP) was launched In June 2010, by the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in strategic partnership with NanoRacks. Designed as a model US national science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education initiative, the program gives typically 300-plus students across a participating community the ability to design and propose real microgravity experiments to fly in low Earth orbit (experiments conducted in a “weightless” environment) aboard the International Space Station (ISS). SSEP is suitable for students in precollege grades 5–12, two-year community colleges, and four-year colleges and universities. The program is about immersing and engaging students and their teachers in every facet of real science—on the high frontier—so that students are given the chance to be scientists and experience science firsthand.
