CADMUS was a student-made experiment with the aim of measuring the flux of muons at different altitudes and experimentally verifying time dilation, one of the effects predicted by the Special Relativity Theory. It was developed in the frame of the REXUS/BEXUS Programme and flew to the stratosphere on a high-altitude balloon in October 2017. This paper discusses its development, from inception to launch, from the perspective of space educational activities.
