Miniaturization, 3D printing, low-cost materials, and retail components; plus a growing variety of affordable launch providers have enabled schools to begin building and launching their own satellite and cubesat experiments into space. In this workshop, we will cover programming Arduino microcontrollers, setting up various sensors, integrating into a CubeSat form-factor, and collecting in-flight data from fixed wing and high altitude balloon flights. Teachers will be sent home with all the equipment, materials, and knowhow to build a working CubeSat with their students. Teachers in Space will work with teachers to develop an experiment that we will then be able to launch on a suborbital flight with Blue Origin.

Teachers in Space, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization which stimulates student interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by providing their teachers with extraordinary space science experiences and industry connections.
