The CanSat Contest

CanSat in an international contest by the European Space Agency. It's about the Students constructing their own mini-satellites – space probe simulations – and using them to conduct researches.

Thanks to CanSat, students get a chance to engage in an original science and engineering project on quite an early stage.

CanSat is a science probe which fits into a beverage can. Its aim is to conduct research and experimentation during a rocket flight, and then a descent with a parachute. Student's teams face the challenge of putting all the necessary satellite functionalities into their CanSat, i.e. power module, communications module, and an onboard computer.
