NASA Awards our Maine CubeSat Program!

Thanks to the hard work and dedication or our team, Maine was recently selected to participate in NASA’s CubeSat Launch Initiative Program!  Congratulations to the University of Maine (lead institution), University of Southern Maine, Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve, Saco Middle School, Fryeburg Academy and Falmouth High School!

“NASA’s Cubesat Launch Initiative has a goal to have all 50 states participate by developing and launching nanosatellites, says Terry Shehata, director of the Maine Space Grant Consortium. The consortium launched a statewide competition in January 2019 to all Maine school districts for CubeSat project proposals to the NASA CubeSat Launch Initiative.”:

We are very excited about this program and the opportunities for student involvement and look forward to working with you all!
