Since 2012, the University of Applied Science and Arts of Western Switzerland (HES-SO) is participating in REXUS (Rocket Experiment for University Students) educational space programs on regular basis. Two teams affiliated to this institution (CAESAR, ARES II) have already flown their experiment, investigating capillary dominated flows. The two teams have been collecting relevant scientific data that were published in scientific conferences and symposia. HADES, the latest HES-SO team selected to fly its experiment on REXUS 27, is investigating space capsule reentry dynamics, and is scheduled to fly in the beginning of 2020. The most amazing outcome of these programs was the achievement of a deep sense of belonging between the team members all across the university bachelor and master degrees. A detailed description of the REXUS program outcomes for the HES-SO will be given, including scientific, educational and outreach results.
