We’re a team of young students on a mission to change the game, developing and launching a CubeSat into orbit.
Our goal is to create a better world through the adoption of sustainability, universal education, and innovative technologies.

In addition, we plan to foster and inspire young people in disadvantaged parts of the world, in order to help bridge the gap that exists purely due to geographic location.
