FAQ

DreamUp is an educational company dedicated to providing in-space opportunities to non-professionals who’ve never had access to space before – students, teachers and those using crowd-sourcing to fund space projects. We believe that innovation and technological advancement can stem from any small team that is big on ideas but lacks access to space transport and aim to bring the magic of space into the classroom. DreamUp is a subsidiary company of XO Markets, the holding company for Nanoracks, LLC, the market leader for access to low-Earth orbit.
DreamUp provides opportunities for students and teachers to gain unparalleled real-world STEM experience to engage today’s dreamers and prepare tomorrow’s problem solvers. Global change requires new skill sets that can be learned by participating in engaging science and tech-focused learning experiences. We believe outer space, with its limitless possibilities, has the ability to captivate students like few other subjects. Read more about DreamUp’s impact here.
No, DreamUp is a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). PBCs represent a type of company that incorporates specific goals to provide benefits to the public in its otherwise for-profit mission and functions. Our mission is to provide space-based educational opportunities to all students, in order to enable and inspire the next generation of innovators and explorers.
We welcome innovators of all ages! We’ve flown a number of experiments put together by elementary school students from 2nd grade onwards.

We have tried and reviewed several educational kits over the years and by far, this is the most exciting and realistic kit that we have come by which offers realistic lessons and situations that researchers will encounter in space. The Space Farmer Kit provided hands-on STEM learning in a manner that sparks both innovation and curiosity. It offers flexibility for creativity and inquiry. We are very happy with this kit and we look forward to future DreamUp Kits that provide realistic and fun learning experiences.
