iLEAD Aerospace Projects
iLEAD Agua Dulce emphasizes 21st-century skills and preparing learners for the work world, and tangible experiences help elevate the learning process. Examples include our DreamUp to Space challenges, where teams of learners come up with scientific research projects that launch to the International Space Station for testing; or living history programs, where learners re-create scenes

By Michael Niehoff Education Content Coordinator at iLEAD Schools Recently, dozens of learners from various iLEAD schools (iLEAD Lancaster, iLEAD Agua Dulce and iLEAD-SCVi) experienced an out-of-this-world opportunity. Selected from over 200 teams, the young scientists realized their dream of sending experiments to space. An educational spinoff of NanoRacks, the DreamUp to Space Experiment Design
All proceeds go toward travel expenses, so that our 6th and 7th grade DreamUp Launch Team can go to NASA in Florida and watch their experiment launch to the International Space Station, where the astronauts will conduct the experiment!
Although our announcement about the huge accomplishment of our 5th/6th grade Aloe Vera Experiment Team went out before break, we would like to congratulate all of our learners who worked tirelessly on our DreamUp projects. We were already over the moon that we had two teams selected to be in the final six and overjoyed
All of us familiar with aerospace projects know that sometimes things do not go exactly as planned and launches get rescheduled.

iLEAD Student Aerospace Projects is pleased to announce the top two selected patches for the DreamUp Mission 2019. The selection process was very difficult for our esteemed panel of judges, and we wish that we could send all 859-plus patch designs to the International Space Station. We want to thank our judges: Jeff Courtney, iLEAD
We are thrilled to announce that we had well over 850 incredible patch designs submitted for this year’s 2019 mission patch design challenge. Nearly all of the patches were proudly displayed at this year’s Student Space and Innovations Expo and it was an impressive showing of design thinking and artistic execution. Congratulations to every learner
Announcing the DreamUp to Space Mission 2018-2019 Finalists! During the final phase of the Experiment Design Challenge, these teams will respond to comments regarding their proposals, make improvements to their proposal, create a short video “pitching” their idea, and also create a plan on how — if their experiment is chosen to fly to the
