MaxIQ Space has secured eight payloads on the NASA high altitude balloon launch from New Mexico, each year in August.

This project includes:

  • Kits - the MK04 kit will be shipped to you and your team, so that you may configure and code it for your experiment.
  • Course - you and your team will be enrolled in a Canvas course, developed specifically for this project. The course includes curriculum, suggestions, experiments to perform to understand your kit and its applications, a discussion forum, and a calendar to manage dates, deadlines and events.
  • Virtual Workshops - we will schedule and deliver four, sixty minute Zoom workshops. These sessions will cover the requirements of the project, and will give you and your team access to our technical team. One of the workshops will be held once the payloads have returned from the HAB mission, so that we can compare notes and data sets, and prepare for presentations at space industry conferences.
  • Launch - the launch is in mid-August, from Fort Sumner, New Mexico. 
  • Logistics - When you receive your kits, we will include a container for you to use when shipping the launch-ready kit to us for integration. In addition, all shipping costs will be covered by us, all you'll need to do is attach the shipping label to the package in preparation for collection by the courier.


All participating teams need to be familiar with the MaxIQ Space ecosystem and kits.

The minimum requirements are to have:

  • Completed at least three of the Space STEM modules using the MK01 STEM kit, and
  • Added the advanced sensors in the MK01A kit and flashed the updated code to the core.

Limited Space:

This mission can accommodate eight payloads, therefore we are limited to eight groups participating. The updated launch manifest can be found here.
