AEXA Aerospace, llc

Providing creative aerospace solutions and applications



The International Air and Space Program (IASP) is a joint effort of Aexa Aerospace, LLC, and Space Center Houston. Now in its fourth year, the program attracts hundreds of high school and college students online and physically from 38 countries to participate in a simulated mission to Jupiter's moon "Europa". This global competition challenges the students' engineering skills, prompts creative thinking and invites innovative ideas on developing thermal shields, robots, and other technologies essential to the mission. 

The program sparks students to begin dreaming of their own careers as aerospace engineers. There are no boundaries! Financial aid and scholarships are provided by Aexa.
