Running Experiments in Outer Space

Learn how the emerging market of small satellites, CubeSats are democratizing access to student space exploration. This workshop will include running hands-on experiments using CubeSat sensors in the classroom. These same sensors are available on a constellation of CubeSats for student experiments. Attendees will work with the tools used to design and upload experiments to satellite in low earth orbit. Data analysis and visualization of previous space experiment data will be used to demonstrate the tools for creating a shareable experiment portfolios.

Additional Supporting Materials


  1. Learn how to run hands-on classroom experiments with sensors and Arduino micro-controller
  2. Learn how to document the engineering / scientific method of an experiment into a shareable student portfolio
  3. Learn how to design experiments to be run on satellites in low earth orbit
