Transition Year Cansat

Congratulations to Team CAN-a-Bits (best video) and Team CAN-struction (most work done to date) who have succeeded in winning all categories of the preliminary round of the CANSAT competition hosted by GMIT.

https://www.facebook.com/Gmit-CanSat-923640067646096/?fref=ts

CanSat is a simulation of a real satellite, integrated within the volume and shape of a soft drink can. The challenge for the students is to fit all the major subsystems found in a satellite, such as power, sensors and a communication system, into this minimal volume. The CanSat is then launched by a rocket or dropped from a platform or captive balloon and its mission begins: to carry out a scientific experiment and achieve a safe landing.

CanSat offers a unique opportunity for students to have a practical experience of a real space project. They are responsible for all aspects: designing the CanSat, selecting its mission, integrating the components, testing, preparing for launch and then analysing the data.
