CanSat Training Day

CanSat Training Day

The first training day and meeting of the Scottish schools' team-leaders and partners was held on Wednesday at the University of Glasgow Aerospace Engineering Department. Fistral were represented by Paul (with his Scottish Competition Secretary hat on) and myself. We joined experts from the European Space Agency/T-Minus Engineering and the Dutch CanSat Competition, postgrad students from Glasgow and Strathclyde Universities, Amanda Hemphill Photography and all 10 representatives from the schools who have entered the competition.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day and learned a lot from the Dutch CanSat/T-Minus/ESA team, and the group did some hands-on workshops involving soldering and testing of satellite components, software and parts. Although to be fair, I left the soldering to the experts (not sure the singed-hair look would be a good one)...

Thanks for your enthusiasm and participation (in no particular order) to:

Great start to a really exciting competition! To infinity and beyond (not sure how many times I'm going to get away with that reference...) Smile
