To involve Stockton students and faculty in collaborative research in space science
Involve students in a competition to design experiments and develop proposals on micro gravity effects on biological, chemical or physical systems which will be peer reviewed.
Winning experimental designs are flown to the International Space Station. Students undertake post-flight analysis and presentation.

The International Space Station (ISS) is a collaborative national laboratory orbiting approximately 260 miles above the earth. The ISS is an excellent platform for testing the effects of microgravity and preparing for further space travel.
The Student SpaceflighExperiments Program [or SSEP] is a program of the National Center for Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) in the U.S. and the Arthur C.Clarke Institute for Space Education internationally. It is enabled through a strategic partnership with DreamUp PBC and NanoRacks LLC, which are working with NASA under a Space Act Agreement as part of the utilization of the International Space Station as a National Laboratory
The objectives of NJSGC are to develop programs to further space science, aerospace and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) education, as well as to foster research and development in New Jersey
