In an effort to get kids involved with some hands-on learning, the Space Kit from startup Ardusat trains kids to conduct science experiments in space. So while some companies are investing and bringing up the next generation by focusing on coding skills, Arudsat is looking to the future astronauts and explorers.

Devoted to helping young scientists, the new company collaborated with satellite data firm Spire to let students send up 'educational payloads' with their satellites containing their experiments. A range of different Space Kits are available, including the Classroom Launch Pack. The educational tool kits gives teachers everything they need to conduct experiments in class and create their space-bound prototypes. They all center around data collection versus physical trials, and contain working sensors. Other resources and video content are also included.
